    New service done today

    Changed out a 100 amp 13 space qo panel and apartment disconnect with this
    That is a 200a MBP reliance with a 60a generator interlock . First time I put one of these in it's a pretty well made panel with all copper buss etc not bad IMO anyone have experience with the brand?

    I’m trying to imagine how you’ve connected this interlock to things. Is that the interlock breaker box to the left of the 200 amp panel? What is in the conduit leaving the top I am under the impression the flex contains conductors from a power inlet?

    Did you upgrade the wiring too? Or just put in a 200 amp panel?

    Are you joking or serious? I can't tell. If you are serious then I will say that it doesn't have to be fireproof.
    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 do have the smiley there... But, every job I've been on in that last twenty years calls for it so it stuck out when I first saw it.

    The same routine; Fireproofed wood with two coats of grey.

    Ok, what do ya’ll do when that panel is screwed to the studs in a stud bay? Use fireproof studs and two coats of gray/black? I think your AHJ’s have lost their minds.

    Fireproof wood........is that a oxymoron!
    Or do you mean fire rated.
