Wiring a 30A Disconnect

13 years ago

Well, I got the 220 wiring to the AC unit, but was told I must have a "disconnect" near the unit. That was news to me, but I got one and now I need to know perzactly how to wire it.

It's the one with the fuses.

My question is: Does both the incoming hot wires connect to

the top bar and the outgoing two hot wires connect to the bottom bar? Does it matter if they are reversed?

Or does one incoming hot connect to the top and the other to the bottom and the same for the outgoing hot wires? That wouldn't make sense to me, but I'm thick headed .

Thanks for your help.
