I'm looking for ideas on how I can utilize a 220v 60amp circuit that I have outside the house. The old owners had a hot tub and is now switched off and used for nothing else. So if anybody has some ideas that I could do to use this as a 110 circuit for my lights, I'd very much appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

What you have is exactly what I am doing I ran a 220V 50 Amp circuit to the front of my house that ends at a 220V plug. From there I will have a plug that runs into a temp subpanel that will break the 220V into 4 120V GFCI outlets.

Was the subpanel that plugs into the 220 something you bought or something you put together? Not looking for an instructional, just if it is something could pick up at HD or somewhere.

I bought a 220V 50Amp plug, some 6/3 cable and a small outdoor break panel and basically put it all together. I am going to finish the subpanel tomorrow and I will post some pics in the Bill's Journey thread.
