    Without seeing it, it’s hard for me to say. I would just go to the main panel if I was use.

    Ok here is the deal. It will work yes. But since you only have a 100 amp breaker leads me to believe the wire supplying that breaker is only a 100 amp service wire. So you’ll want to be careful ok.

    Honestly I’ve only done this temporary. I would check with your electrical inspector. ┬áJust remember that main service wire. That could be your biggest issue.
