    I am referring to LFNC, since it will be under the house. An angle connector under the ATS, and maybe a little bit of rigid PVC behind the genny.

    Larry, my comment was not directly pointing at you, I was teasing.

    I say pipe all the time.

    Code reference please?

    Are you people referring to particular raceways....
    Pipe, raceway, channel, conduit, duct, leader, line, penstock, trough, tube, drain, tile, spout....all mean about the same thing as a general term.

    did similiar install recently with tray cable from generac, also available from other sources, jp suffix makes it legal run through crawl space

    and sleeved in pvc conduit for exterior portion of run

    I think cable had #3 copper for lines and neutral, reduced green for ground, and maybe 4 control wires (I did not terminate so don't remember)

    Will a disconnect be required where the feeder from the generator enters the crawl space?
