Its seems like you have got efficaciously decided that you can get a warm tub with out a crane.? since you weren’t 100 positive on making the judgment name, calling us was an excellent concept and we were more than satisfied to pop out and take a glance.? so now which you are properly to your manner to getting began along with your task, its time to put together your spot.
So....... Question 1: can i floor the hot bath inside the subpanel and run the impartial into the principle panel and connect it there ? Will that create a parallel circuit? Will that save you the gfci breaker from tripping?. Here is where i am now misplaced..... The sub has simplest one bus bar, all stressed connected are grounds, there's no floating neutral bus bar. I realize i can not run the breaker (which has a built in "coiled" neutral wire to the floor bus bar or i create a parallel circuit which will feed returned modern-day and could now not trip the gfci.

The main panel does no longer have a chief disconnect breaker, the sub panel is being fed from a 60 amp breaker inside the most important panel that has two wires from the breaker to the subpanel lugs, a ground and a impartial inside the predominant panel. The modern-day subpanel (also square d) bus is a floor bus jogging to the principle panel bus.
