30A RV outlet question


It is HIGHLY doubtful that you will be able to safely and legally tap off that disconnect/breaker.
I know you don't like this answer but it the only one I personally have.

OP what is the manufacturer and model of that disconnect? Can you get a clearer pix of the disconnect only. Are there additional knock outs next to the disconnect breaker?

Actually, I can, and do have one in my shop, 200a, given to me by mistake.

30A RV outlet question


Is your basement finished?? If not, just run 10/2 or 10/3 from your breaker panel to wherever you want the RV outlet. You could've already done that in the time this thread has been running.

True story. Thanks for the input everyone. I'm going to consider this topic closed and move on.
