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.
