in receptacle to the panel and thought I would run it by the powers to be here as to where I connect them. First note: The upper 3 breakers, labeled 1,2 and 3, have a single
toggle. In other words, toggle to power on and all 3 close.
That being said, I am assuming that the black (hot) wire goes to the copper buss bar. White (neutral) goes to #2 breaker and the ground ties common to all device grounds. Is this right?
You have what many of us call a SeaRay Breaker, it is not a three pole 220 breaker. It is also common with an M & I Panel 120v Entrance.
# 1 is not a breaker, it's a coil
#2 is Ac 120 Neutral Breaker
# 3 is Ac 120 Hot(line one) Breaker
# 1 is a Coil to alert for reverse polarity
# 2 is a CI on the N to trip # 3
# 3 is a CI to trip on OC, and SC to Grnd(either by N, or G)...
