    Within sight

    If air conditoning disconnect in panelboard is located in same room no walls between as unit but when you face the unit the panelboard is behind the person but within 50 feet of the unit then is it considered to be within sight per code?

    IMO, yes however, years ago I did get red tagged for that. Install a disconnect and be done with it

    BTW, how can an a/s unit be inside a room? The unit must be outside
    They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
    She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
    I can't help it if I'm lucky
