Nemosity Posted June 8, 2010 Report Share Posted June 8, 2010 Ok, wiring up an out building to power, installing a break box and outlets. Now I have done some electrical work in the past, but never had to install a new breaker box. I have two main wires coming in, both are spun aluminum 2 or 4 gauge. I have tied onto those wires at the pole with 10 gauge and ran it into the new breaker box. I had a main breaker on the top of the box, but with all the bullshat I am dealing with, I removed it and attached the two main wires into the slugs were the main breaker attachment used to be. I hooked the ground bar to the incoming water line into the building with 8 gauge. I have 120vac on and at the outlet from ground to one side, but not the other. Nothing is attached to the neutral bar besides the white wire going to the outlet. As soon as I plug anything into the outlet, the 120vac drops to 40vac. I am banging my head against a wall, trying to get this done to put my wife and family at ease and moving the grow to this out building but without power, it's hopeless. Any idea's? Thanks in advance, I'm going to go medicate and see if anything comes to me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
