Okay! I was asking because two (hot) 110v lines go into the disconnect and I didn't know if you add up the two fuses that are used. Following your advice I will start with two 15 amp fuses. Thanks!

We were surprises as well when we unpacked the heater, although we don't know the regulations for this of course.

I could add a 2 way box next to the 3 way and move the power 8/3 to the 2 way?
