I would like to run a picture and some ideas off of you guys. I've wired a barn, added a subpanel with breakers and a 50' run at this place and have LOVED doing it. I've read and watched ANYTHING and EVERYTHING I can electrical from books, to bugging my poor electrician to death
Here's the scenario:
2 houses, one a mobile home/trailer. One has direct feed from PGandE and a meter.
There is 1 dual pole 50 amp breaker with neutral and ground running to mobile home as of now. The mobile is powered and doing well.
They would like to submeter the mobile.
From what I've read it seems simple, cut the juice to the 50 amp breakers make sure line is dead, and put meter & housing in between using only the hot wires.
Am I correct?
I've included a 'sketch' of what I want to do... Hopefully this will help someone help me
As you see in the 'panel connections blow up' I'm still trying to see where the input from the master house and the exit to the mobile home will be.
I assume "A" is the input FROM the master house, and "B" is the outgoing to the trailer itself.
Yet - you all know what happens when you assume
Obviously, for myself and the people that live there safety is my primary concern. I will kill all power before attempting to install the power meter and double and triple check my work before I put the power back on.
I just need some reassurance that this is the correct way to go about it.
Also, do I need to ground the box, or does the neutral need to go inside the meter box?
