Upgrade from 80 Amp circuit breaker to a 125 amp circuit breaker
I would like to replace our 40 gal hot water heater with a tankless on demand water heater. Presently there is a main breaker in the panel of 80 amps. I need to replace my existing 30 amp hot water heater breaker with one that is 60 amp to handle the load from the tankless heater. ( of course I will wire with 6-2 AWG as called for.)
I don't think the 80 amp breaker will handle this. I wonder if I replaced it with a 100 amp breaker will this handle the load. Are there any considerations to this thought.
We live in a trailer home and the electricity comes to us underground from a electric meter that is mounted with three other meters. Electric goes from pole underground to meter then to us. I looked at a small panel under the meter and it has a 70amp breaker. I have I forgotten any info?
