Hello all! So to update, my tiny house builder spoke with a master electrician she works with and he said that I would be ok with either 6/2 or 8/2 at a 200 ft distance! He told me to go with a 30 amp breaker at the panel I’m connecting to....I bought a 2 pole 30 amp breaker and the largest wire size it says it’s rated for is 8 awg....so I went ahead and ordered 220 ft of 8/2....my question now is I noticed you can buy a single pole 30 amp breaker ...since I’m only doing 120v should I go with single pole as opposed to double pole? Thanks in advance!

Also, do you think 6/2 would most likely be adequate or is that pushing it ?

So if I use 4/2 wire what size breaker would you say I should put in at the main breaker panel?

Thanks so much all for this very informative conversation! You can be rest assured that what you contribute to this discussion is directly helping make happen a real persons situation! I very much appreciate it ....Glenn and Bruce you are very much fleshing out the details of what I’d like to know ....Glenn thank you for addressing the possible 7% voltage drop ...I used a similar calculator and got a result of around 5.5 % voltage drop but that might have been for 8/3 wire as apposed to 8/2 which Bruce hipped me to....I guess the question is is a 7% voltage drop bad? I know it isn’t recommended

Thanks for all the info Bruce! 8/2 wire will fit into a 30 amp breaker correct? It’s not too big?

Hello all! I’ve live in a yurt for the last four years and am upgrading to a tiny house! I should have my house in the next 2 months….here’s my dilemma ….I want to run power 200 ft from my friends breaker ….my house is a 30 amp 120 v service and I won’t be running a washer and dryer or anything that pulls a ton of power….I’m thinking to run 8/3 wire from a 30 amp breaker and just set up a 30 amp receptacle at my site for my tiny to plug into…my question is will this work? Has anyone else done something like this? Thanks in advance!
