I'm attempting to wire a RV for hooking up to 50 Amp Service.

Using a AC Diconnect (60-Amp 240-Volt 240-Watt Fused )connected to a

125 Amp (PowerMark Gold 125-Amp 4-Space 8-Circuit Indoor Main Lug Circuit Breaker Panel)

My concern is that the AC Disconnect does not have a Lug for Neutral.

Would it be okay to run the Nuetral straight from the RV Plug to the 125 Amp Panel ?

I cant afford an electrician at the moment and have been taking advice from Home Depot employees so I would greatly appreciate some oversight

This is what I was told to do by HD QUESTION


That is perfectly fine.

The neutral does not have to terminate in the disconnect box, but of course the equipment ground does.

Just so you know, as long as you are coming from a 50A breaker in the breaker panel you do not need a fused disconnect. Actually, what is feeding that ML panel? I cannot see a feeder.

    The disconnect is required, because it looks like there's 8 handles in the panel. – Tester101 Sep 23 '15 at 23:46
  • Also, I believe nothing is currently feeding the panel, since the feed will come from the disconnect. – Tester101 Sep 23 '15 at 23:47
  • I have the disconnect as my 'Main Shutoff '. The feed is coming from a 50 Amp Receptacle Like this one homedepot.com/catalog/productImages/1000/84/… Im using 6 Gauge to wire it, was having concerns about the neutral since I need 240 and 120 – Jimmy Sep 23 '15 at 23:56
  • OH!! Ok, sorry, I was looking at it backwards. That panel is in the RV, that is not the source panel. I thought you were wiring an RV receptacle. Either way, what you propose is fine. And yes, since it is a ML panel with more than 6 spaces you do need some form of service disconnect. – Speedy Petey Sep 24 '15 at 1:06
