Can I remove the panel and be sure there is a white wire attached at bottom leg of the 30amp / 240v outlet to ensure that is a 'wired' neutral? I've read enough to figure out that the volt meter needs to read 240v between left and right leg, 120v between left and bottom and left and top leg and also 120v between right leg and bottom and top leg.
If I understand it right, when all said and done I need 120 on left, 120 on right, neutral on bottom and ground on top?
