Hi Jerry, added a new breaker box to my system and have continuity through all wires and apparently have all connections at the spa. Spa worked before the change, but now the control panel is powering up. Have power to the connection box to the spa.

I use a 50 amp two pole breaker in box for spa. These have two 2 wires at 120 each and are consistent from main box in house Each are wired to proper connection on spa. There is one neutral wire and a ground wire. I have checked the quality of the breakers and all are functional. There does not appear to be a reset switch on the spa it self. The spa was working just prior to putting the new breaker in the line and this is not a new system. The configuration is House(main breaker box 50 amp 2pole in place two years) line to back patio area (add new box 100 amp cap with 50 amp two pole breaker and have one 120 15 amp for power to cover patio. This set up is new and all is functional) then line to spa box(original GFCI box and 50 amp breaker) then original line to spa connectors. At each point I have power and all lines are color connected properly. I thought it might be the new box but bypassed it again and still nothing.
