A lot of info you find for wiring still refers to a 220 volt circuit, so don't feel bad about saying that instead of 240.
Here is one right here. http://www.ehow.com/how_7738449_wire-volt-20-amp-outlet.html. In years past all dwellings
were designed for 110 and 220 volts. The 10 gage wire will handle 30 amps. Having a 20 amp breaker for overcurrent
certainly meets NEC but so would a 30 amp. Also some 14 gage wire power cords are rated at 18 amps. That's a good stiff
220 supply with a lot of headroom you have as 12 wire would have probably done the trick.
Ten Tec knows what they are doing and don't alter it is my advice, especially under warranty. They look badly upon alterations to their stuff as I'm sure you know.
