Large RV park Power Co. brings in several services off of several transformers in Different locations.(spread out over large area one owner) Each service allowed up to Six Switches without a main . One transformers feeds two areas . It feeds 2-800 amp services back to back. Six disconnects each ? As each is a service.
Since there all out in the open they are Not feeding buildings or Structures. Makes for an interesting question.
Opinions please.

The first thing to remember is that the NEC stops where the PoCo takes over. In most instances, we can consider the meter as this point.

So ... that would be six disconnects after each meter.

These are not to be confused with customer owned meters that there night be on each space.

If the meters at each pedestal are, in fact, PoCo meters, then the NEC does not apply to whatever feeds those meters.

Theres Never Meters at each Pedestal , You;d have over 100 meters or so in the park. They usually CT at the transformer . Then run to the Main Pnl. But even then the Service point for Each is at the panel, But one transformer has two service drops Ct'd at the transformer.( RV) parKs are awhole different ball game.Remember this is a RV park not a Trailer Park.
