Default 30 AMP GFI Breaker

Is it common for a 30amp dual pole GFI breaker to be closer to $100

This is what I need to finish my Kal Clone setup.

Yes, most people tie into an existing non-GFCI circuit and use a spa panel disconnect for about $60.

At retail pricing, yes. That sounds about right. I've paid around $59-70 when purchasing them wholesale.

Here is the deal, I am going to run my dryer off of it sometimes and my panel sometimes, so I assume its better just to run a new breaker vs the spa panel.

IF it is a 4 wire system, your dryer is set up to be plugged into a 4 wire outlet and the dryer is properly set up.

Thanks Dustbow, I was looking for one. I actually have a non-gfi cord I bought off of Kal's website that I will probably resell and just use this. Now I just have to run a new line to my dryer and install the new cord on my dryer. When I bought my dryer it could be wired for 3 or 4 pin
