You only need the neutral at the service disconnect. After that it is not required.
What the heck is going on? Did everybody leave the house and you're stuck there alone? Cable went out?
If I have any say about it that is what my daughter will be wearing for her prom dress.
Gonna need more than one roll of yellow caution tape for that.
Come on now Dennis! You are going this far, why stop short of anything less than first class?
Will I be okay if I put up some yellow caution caution tape and have the fire department and paramedics on stand by?
What do you mean by galvanized conduit? EMT or GRC?
If it is GRC and in good shape I would use it as my eequipment ground. If EMT I would poke around a bit more but would most likely use it....
But there are a whole bunch of us who do. I see no reason to lower standards and drag the whole trade down.
I like the idea of better training, evaluations, and continuing ED. Where we are headed...
And I go back to this....
90.1 Purpose.(A) Practical Safeguarding. The purpose of this Code is the practical safeguarding of persons and property from hazards arising from the use of electricity....
I would do that, do do that, will continue to do that. Everybody I work with would do that.
I can't think of a good reason not to pull nine 12AWG in a 1/2" emt. What is your concern?
Stupid, stupid new rule. One code change makes a hundred years of safe wiring a bad choice instead of an elegant, cost effective one.
Yes, I agree.

I have been asking the same question since the 90's. I can only figure that it has to do with the way our power grid is set up. Somebody or some group set out to change the entire US but only managed...
Every jurisdiction does not see it this way.
I have not run any SS EMT, but I used to run tubing. They make special benders for it, Ridged and Imperial were the two most common brands. They support the tubing on both the inside and outside of...
No, it was never legal. Now how often was a set up like yours allowed by a local inspector or overlooked, that is a different matter.
Welcome to the forum. There are a lot of us here with bad...
What do you mean by "tripped the breaker as soon as it was shorted"? What kind of short? Hot to neutral? Hot to equipment ground?
You need to bond X2,X3 inside the transformer or at the first...
Conduit bodies are not boxes, but you do need boxes with threaded entries.
It's a finished house.
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.
