Does anyone know the average temperture range of a 50A 125/250V receptacle be under normal load. What temperture would be reached to activate the circuit breaker.

A) I have no idea what the average temp of the receptacle would be. Ambient temps will have a huge impact on this number so IMO it is impossible to say.
WHY does this matter?

B) The thermal trip in a circuit breaker is not rated in degrees of temperature.

C) What is "Dockside"?
