comment Can I run a 50 amp circuit underground?
There's no special danger. If something is mis-wired you might have trouble, but that's true of all electrical systems. You won't be able to run more than 1 AC at a time. amazon.com/Camco-55185-Powergrip-Dogbone-Electrical/dp/…

If you go through the trouble of digging a trench for this new wire, bury several conduits instead of burying wire directly. You can then use them for a fresh water line, a sewer line out of a macerator, an additional circuit, telephone, ethernet, compressed air, etc.

Get a 50A - 30A dog bone and keep using your existing circuit.

comment What would cause air bubbles in the toilet when I'm showering?
I love & hate snakes. When using a snake, be sure to take small steps. Run the snake in a short way, pull it out, clean it, then repeat a little further in. If you try to go the whole way at once, it will get stuck on a bunch of gunk and be very hard to remove & clean. It helps tremendously if you have access to a drain cleanout, so you don't have to push through the P-trap. Adding a clean out is a great project for the ambitious DIY-er who isn't afraid of the muck.
