Question about Home
The unit shows to lights to show its in normal electrical operation. The right light is out and the manual says the white neutral wire is not connected but it is connected correctly to a 50 amp GFCI breaker. What else would cause it to read this

I have seen circuit breakers trip at a lower amperage. It seems that they are weak. Generally circuit breakers run with 80% load with no problem, in your case 24 amps. I would replace the circuit breaker.

gfci's are designed to trip if they receive voltage on there ground/neutral side, therefore my vote is for Smithbrother I would say there is probably a partial short somewhere in you system.

Yes the red and black wires are both hot. As for the white and bare wire, they can both go on the neutral bus bar because ground and neutral are not separated. Actually you don't have to have the bare ground wire, but it is a good idea to connect it for inspection and code purposes. If you don't have a neutral bar in the subpanel, you can just connect the white and bare wires directly to the box and they will be ok.

SOURCE: 120v hot tub wiring diagram
I would expect your tub is either 110 or 220. Currently you are set up for 110. Based on that ... you disregard the red wire.
If your tub can run on 220, you should run it on 220 as this is more economical.
You should probably have an electrician check this out and make any changes to assure proper and SAFE operation of your tub. You are using a GFI, correct?

When Working with Household Electricity you want to always keep in mind that the BLACK wire ALWAYS carries DEATH. What I mean by this is that working with a Single Phase Circuit (one that uses 120VAC) the only wire that should be carrying a voltage is the BLACK one, the other 2 wires (typically the White Neutral and Green Ground) should both be electrically connected to Earth Ground (usually by being attached to your water pipe.)
It is also possible that your hot tub may use more than 20 Amps.
