Max breaker size
I have a house with an 8-3 direct burial cable ran from the main panel in the house to the garage. In the main panel it's just looped around and taped up, it still needs to be landed on a breaker. In the garage there is just a coil on the wall waiting for a sub panel to be installed.
For this type of cable, what is the max breaker size I could put in the main panel? 40A? I know there are times that you could get 50A with an 8 gauge conductor, I'm just not sure when.
