Disconnect help

I have a 60 amp disconnect as I don't want to use fuse (all 30 amp seem to have fuse)
my ODU heat pump is max 31 amp, min 17 amp.
Can I use 10/2 Romex for that, or should I stick with a 6/2?
disconnect is going to be wired just above a crawl space vent,which leads to basement
Picture attached of nameplate.
All amd any advice appreciated

10/2 Romex on a 30 amp breaker/fuse will be fine for your A/C. 6/2 is way overkill.
The Romex can only be used from the panel to the disconnect (Indoors). From the disconnect to the unit you are required to use induvial conductors and liquid tight conduit. Or you can just get one of these:
