    I guess I could have labeled it "For future expansion", but labeled tape is expensive. [emoji846]

    Not sure if you are being serious with the smiling emoticon there. The manufacturer sells a retaining clip for this panel to hold the back fed breaker so I think yes. Why wouldn't it be? I thought...

    He failed the inspection.



    This is irrelevant. The exception says 6lbs max. Does not give a further exception for attaching to the wall.

    Inspector crazy or me?

    I installed this box on a block wall to hold a bathroom vanity light. (I cut a hole in the block and tapcon'ed the bracket to the block after flattening it out.)

    Correct.

    Update: The panel change is in full swing. I placed a 4x4x36 trough between the old panel and the ceiling to intercept all the cables. It's on standoffs so I don't have to disconnect...

    We have a 1:5 ratio. 1:1 would be very expensive. It's not hard to keep five apprentices busy. They get plenty of learning opportunities.

    Is the neutral in 240v circuit a CCC?

    In dryer and range circuits, is the neutral considered a current carrying conductor for derating purposes?

    The panel is back-to-back with the meter. I push the envelope with the inspector's here frequently. This is one battle I want to avoid.

    That would be very tight I think. 8" through the block, then 8" on each side of wall. What if i use trough instead of conduit? Does derating apply to trough?

    I assume you meant derating. How long can a short nipple be without derating? It would have to have two LB's in it as well since the panels are not back-to-back.

    No. They removed and replaced all the Sheetrock. As is my normal practice, I took photos of every wall when it was open studs which was very helpful to find several boxes the installers covered up.
