    Same here. sounds like distance isn't much of an impact on voltage drop but if it were a MWBC could see some improvement in voltage drop over two separate circuits with same size conductor and same loads.

    At minimum I think each structure needs it's own disconnect. Am I mistaken with this?

    Most of the time yes. There are some exceptions mentioned in 225.32. Lighting poles are one common application that doesn't need a disconnect at the separate structure.

    Sevaral times I have ran or seen a single receptacle on a post with no local disconnect, not sure how that is exempted, or maybe it just is let go quite often.
