Installing a 30 Amp Outlet for a Motor Home
Electrical Question: I need to run approx 80 feet of #10 wire for a 30 amp outlet to plug in my motor home. What can I use for an on/off switch near the outlet?

Thanks for your electrical question Ralph
Motor Home Outlet
Providing a Disconnect Switch for a Motor Home
The 30 amp service for the motor home may be brought into a sub panel where a 30 amp circuit breaker may be installed and used as a disconnect switch. The 30 amp circuit breaker would feed the 30 amp receptacle where the motor home would be plugged into.
This electrical project should be installed with a permit and all work should be inspected.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
