If you have hot wires in that box when the breaker is off, i would say you
better call in a pro to check this out. If i was there to check it then i could tell you what is wrong and fix it. later paul

Ok problem solved.
Solution:
L1 black 120v
L2 white 120v
T1 black heater
T2 white heater

Tested, didn't blow the main again and works.

Thanks for the help.

Not sure on your wiring issue, but you definitely have a breaker issue. If the breaker for the feed didnt trip and the main did then the feeder breaker is either incorrectly sized or is not working, or possibly the main is weak. Just something else to worry about.
