I've got a 220v line from an old dryer that we no longer use. I'd like to split the circuit at the dryer outlet into two 110v receptacles in different locations. The line is currently 10 AWG and is fed through a 30A double circuit breaker. My question is,"At the receptacle, can I use the red for one cricuit, the black for a second circuit and share the white and ground?" I would replace the 30a with two 20a circuit breakers. From the split I would feed the outlets with 12 AWG wire. I read the posting at the beginning of this forum, "Changing a 220V receptacle to 110V eceptacles" but it really didn't make sense to me. For code purposes, I live in the US. I'd like to do this to alleviate running new wires from the panel. Thank you very much
I am lost. I have gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
