Installing new 50 Amp RV panel bu

Hi, please help.

I am wiring up a new RV panel that has prewired (internally) 50-30-20 recepticals. "All" I have to do is hook up a 50 AMP breaker and wire it to the new panel, and I am good to go.

FYI, this is being installed on a Tall Cutler Hammer (3' or so) Panel with two sides, mounted on a post in the middle of my vacant 2 acre lot. Left side of panel has power coming into it, right side of panel is where the breakers are. There are no other breakers in the box (I have pictures if needed).

I bought the 50 AMP Breaker (black with tan switch), bought RED, BLACK, WHITE and GREEN #6 wire, my conduit, etc. etc.

I went to hook it up and realized that there is no Neutral Bus/Bar.

I know the Black and Red, go into the breaker, the Green goes into the ground bar, but I can't find any nuetral Bus Bar.

What is going on?

Again, I have a picture, and/or I can run out to the panel to get the number off of it, if necessary.

Do I just run the white and green (from the new panel) into the Neutral Bar?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Do you mean in the RV outlet panel or in the main panel from the power company?

If this is the main panel (first panel after the meter), then the ground and neutral bus is shared -- both white and green go there.

NOT the new RV panel.
Yes, it is the first panel after the meter, in fact, it is attached to the meter.
On the left side of the panel there is a meter (that I can't open, it is secured with the power company's tabs, on the right side, there is a panel that I can open.

Awesome, thanks, I think I have my answer. The Ground and Neutral are shared on the first panel after the meter.

Thank you very much for taking the time to reply!
