Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question. 1) Can you take a picture of the inside of the disconnect box and post it here so I can see what you have in place? 2) Is the box a main service disconnect or a downsteam sub-panel? Are you installing a feeder circuit for a sub-panel?

Thanks for the pic's. 1) Unfortunately, the picture of the panel came out being blurred and I am not able to get a good view inside that panel. I see the 2 lugs on the bottom and those are for the 2 hot wires. Looks like you also have 2 bus bars with 1 on the left and 1 on the right side. One or possibly both of these bus bars will be for the neutral. Are the 2 bus bars tied together with a horizontal piece of metal or are they 2 separate bus bars? 2) Is this a main lug panel which does not have a main disconnect circuit breaker? I am unable to view a main breaker in this panel.
