I need to add a 50 amp breaker to be used to supply a plug for EV charging. My current panel is maxed out of spaces, however I do have a 30A breaker that is used for our Dryer that isn't currently being used as we have a LP gas dryer.
Is it safe to remove the current 30A breaker and replace with a 50A breaker? Obviously there will be newer wires with the proper gauge running from the Nema outlet to the 50A breaker. Assuming this is doable, what should be done with the Dryer wires that used to hook up to the 30A breaker?
