I believe you meant to say the ground. There is no neutral on a 220 vac circuit.

Thanks Tom

That's why I hired a guy to hook mine up :-)

Still I hope I got the point across.

Be careful when hooking up the wire to the 30 amp outlet. I just bought an RV box with 30 amp outlet at HD and it fell apart when I hooked the #10 up and tried to push the wiring into the outlet box to button it up. Not sure if any of the commerically available outlets would take a #6 or #8 wire, #10 was tough enough.

The previous owner of my new house had installed an RV electrical line out to the water well pump, and also installed a cleanout in the septic line, so we also have a dump station too!
