I am trying to figure out what size wire I need to connect a condensor to a quick disconnect outside. Here's the specs:

Voltage 208/230
Phase 1
Min Circuit Ampacity 17.1
Max Fuse or CKT BKR 30
Compressor 128 128 RLA 64.0 LRA

Thank You

Pretty sure it is #12. #14 is good for 15 amps. I would use #12 even if #14 is OK as it is borderline. Also depends on your local electrical code/inspector as to what type etc. You may be able to take out a homeowners permit and get the info from your local authorities.

Guessing thats suppose to be 12.8 amp for the compressors RLA, you can use 12 gauge.
