    I have conductors tapped to load side of fused service disconnect terminals not feeders. How does 240.21(B) apply?

    There was a proposal to add language stating that a feeder tap may start at the load terminals of a device, but it was rejected as being Un necessary. You dont actually need a wire type feeder to make a feeder tap.

    Look at the definition of a tap conductor. Both sets of conductors on the load side of your disconnect meet the definition.
