I have a 240 volt 20 amp GFCI circuit breaker powering an outdoor appliance that has 2 electric motors and a motor control unit to synchronize them. I would like to wire a receptacle off of 1 hot leg of the 240 volt breaker instead of having to wire it to another breaker because of ease/cost. I have been trying to see if this would be up to code.
1 hot leg would run to a disconnect switch then to the motor control unit, the other hot leg would run to the receptacle then the disconnect switch then the control unit, then the neutral would run to the receptacle then to the control unit.
Thanks in advance for any light you can shine on this.
Edit: It is a 4 wire feed (hot/hot/neutral/ground). The appliance is hardwired, the feed goes into the motor control unit, then from there out to each motor (It is a 2 motor boat lift, each lift beam/motor assembly is independent). The motors can be powered 120v instead of 240v, but it is not currently wired that way. It is an older appliance/lift, there is no product literature for a UL listing and the company has since closed.
