Maybe this should've gone in the Code portion of the site, but what the heck....
When doing a service in rigid nonmetallic conduit, does the pipe going from the bottom of the meter pan, to the point where the LB enters the structure, need to be fastened within 12" of the bottom of the pan if it is already sturdy w/o a strap? I've always made it a point to make sure a strap was in place if the piece was longer than 12," but today I had a difficult time bending the pipe because of how the siding on the house was.
I know I've done that a few times myself. The most common 'problem' on a residential service (IMO) is the space from where the aluminum siding ends, and the foundation begins. That gap area is what I am referring to.

Since we are talking about pvc and services, It would be nice if they made a mogul pulling lb in pvc for those services that you are sleeving seu with. I know the trick about going one size up on the lb, but it looks bad sometimes.

there is a product on the market called "EZ LB" and while it is not a mogul lb, it comes apart so that all that is left when you take the cover off is the 2 hubs & back of the LB. A real knuckle saver IMO.
Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.
