    The sequel is never as good as the original except for The Godfather.
    If Billy Idol or John Denver is on your play list go and reevaluate your life.

    Only that RHW-2 is 90*C in wet conditions versus its predecessor RHW which is 75*C rated.
    Guess they didn't want to call it RHHW instead.

    Does RHH have a 2 hour fire rating for fire pumps?

    If I am reading this article correct: No.

    Used to be apparently.

    Yes that article is almost 4 years old, I believe the UL has restored the use of RHH with a 2 hour rating.

    I believe it's only 2 hour rated horizontal and not vertical(lost its listing)...need conduit to be run in vertical 2 hour rated enclosure( closet, shaft etc.)
