sub-panel wiring needs
Mike: for a 50 amp subpanel you need at least #6, 4 conductor to properly feed the service as needed. So your looking at: a 50 amp dbl pole breaker coming from the main service equipment to the subpanel line side. Two hot conductors on each line side.. then your neutral on the neutral side terminal, and the ground on its ground terminal side(if not shared..depending on the panel setup). I hope I read comprehended you, answered your question correctly!
