I have a sub panel that was from when the previous owners had a hot tub.
I'm currently needing a 30 amp circuit for a mini split system and was wondering if I could just swap this 50 amp breaker and then run my 10/2 ** ( correction 10 gauge wire) ** in place of the 6 gauge wire that's currently in place?
I know I could run a sub panel from this panel or replace this with a small panel and have the advantage of expanding things in the future. However I can't see any scenario where I would ever need that.
** Update For Clarification ** The conduit and 6 gauge wire that was feeding the hot tub would remain in place just be capped and disconnected in the box. I would punch a new hole and run the new conduit and 10 gauge wire about 10 feet from here to the outside condenser.
