    Did one with 50A and 6/3 NM out through soffit block into PVC sleeve down to disconnect.
    That is non-compliant on two points:

    1. The NM is not permitted outdoors, even inside a conduit.

    2. Any cable with a bare EGC is not permitted outdoors.

      It's final even if it's not the lowest.

      I think my 'supplemental OCP' thought needs further investigation; not everyone has agreed with me yet.

        The whole think is absurd. If a non fused disco is installed a bare egc is okay inside the house but if a breaker is installed in the disco then an insulated egc must be used. How ridiculous is that?
        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

          I don't have or need an '08 code book but in the '05 definition for branch circuit it says: [COLOR=Black]"[/COLOR]the [COLOR=Black]final overcurrent device [COLOR=Red]protecting the circuit[COLOR=Black]"[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR][COLOR=Black][COLOR=Red][COLOR=Black], so unless the definition has changed in the '08, I stand behind my view.
