Can i use 3 ott 4 wire mc for a 200 amp service indoors


No problem but you can use a smaller diameter wire either copper or aluminum to support a 200 amp entrance. I have included a few links to help. Typically aluminum wire is a gauge larger (lower number) then Copper.

What size circuit breaker for rbs305pr oven?


If you're connected to a 240V source, a two-pole 40 amp circuit is required. If connected to a 208V source, a two pole 30 amp circuit is required.

But the limiting factor here will be the wire size. If installed with #10 copper wire, 30 amp will be maximum. If a #8 copper (or #6 aluminum) 40 amp is maximum. See the link below for details.

Travel trailer electric hook up


Most all travel trailers are set up for 30 amp single pole service which means 110 volts. Always check with your service manual and make sure, if you hook it up wrong you will burn up/smoke some electronics and it can be a costly problem. Also, a 30 amp service for travel trailers are not like a regular receptacle, it takes a special type of recept. Most any good electrical supply store can lead you in the right direction but you MUST know how to wire it up to code in your area! If your not a licensed electrician or at least know what I am talking about, I wouldn't recommend you doing this! It may have to be done in GFI and/or waterproof connections.

I need a 2 pole half size arc fault breaker


If you are pressed for space in your panel, it would be easier to free up space in the panel by replacing some of your standard breakers with half size--or "piggy back"--breakers. The freed up space will permit you to install a standard arc fault breaker.

Crouse - Hines Murry Style MP or MD 200 Amp Main Breaker Difficult to Reset


A 200 amp circuit breaker has a large spring to assist in rapid opening and closing a load of this size to minimize damaging arcing every time is it operated under electrical load

The larger the circuit breaker is and the more poles (1, 2 or 3) that are being opened / closed; the more force it will require to operate - both by hand or when tripping. Compare the tension or force you need to apply to a similar sized circuit breaker at Home Depot, etc.

The troubling issue about this for me is the fact that the 200 amp service disconnect / main is tripping. This is an indication of an overloaded panel / circuit. I usually see individual circuits that trip in a panel - but often find the that main breaker has only 20% - 60% of its rating on it at any given time. If you're tripping a 200 amp service disconnect / main breaker repeatedly - something has got to give - and eventually the circuit breaker will fail. That may be where you are now with this breaker. You may be in need of a service upgrade (if it is the service disconnect) as clearly, you have out grown the 200 amp size one you currently have or need add a new sub-panel to ease the load that this 200 amp main is trying to supply now.

Either way, you should call a reputable electrical contractor to have your service / sub-panel evaluated very soon. Good luck!

I need to know what size breaker and what size electric cable should be used in the installation of this Ingersoll Rand SS3L3 3hp motor. I've ordered the compressor but it is supposed to take awhile before...


Hi,
I am assuming that you will be hooking the air compressor to a 240 volt line...
That motor will draw about 18 amps...... so a 20 amp line will be too close to that draw....
so you will be looking at a 30 amp line...
For that you will need to run a 10gauge three wire with ground on a 30 amp two pole breaker...
that will serve you for up to about 100 feet of wire... if you are running the wire farther then that you will need to up size the wire to 8 gauge so that the motor can draw enough to get started...

Amps needed to run a central air unit


Central air requires a 2 pole 30 amp breaker or fuse. You may be able to get by without it but 200 amp service is recommended.
