Sometime back, I put in a panel for a 5th wheel trailer. A shed was put in with a waher and dryer (wiring by the customer's brother), and they hit a UF cable while digging some fence posts. Afterward, someone else made changes.
All you have as a result is a big mess to fix

Hackwork like that, on a good installation, can only be compared to drawing a mustache on the Mona Lisa
