    Voltage drop is not a problem. 14 THHN is fine for control wires. Unless you use the factory supplied whip it's easier to use two pipes- one for generator power and one for control.

    Electronics can be tricky. Most of the problems with them can be traced back to bad wiring practices.

    That's tough. Glad you are back on your feet.

    I have only use coated MC once. The jacket is about the same as TC cable. I don't think birds would tear it up. They might, but your up in the air anyway so no big deal.

    Not sure what your question is, but yes this can happen. It is more likely to be the cause than the reason you were given by the EE.

    We all used to do a lot of MWBC wiring that worked just fine. Too bad it won't make as far into the 21'st century as it lasted in the 20th.
