Anybody know what pulling wire in a "round robin" means?

A "home run" is a run straight to the panel.

A "round robin" is a "home run" with a neutral, and one of each phase conductor, sharing that neutral.

I have never heard that before. What section of the country uses that phrase?

Reno, Nevada. I've been there once or twice. "The Biggest Little City in the USA", as I recall...???
The last time I was there, I was arrested for .....well, that's another story.

Remember, what happens in Reno, stays in Reno. Or something like that.

Some say the city motto is really "come on vacation, leave on probation." [Linked Image]

California, and several other states, it really depends more on age.... There was all kinds of slang, most of which seem to be attached to who trained you and how old they were. - Some of the Irish I used to work for had all together a different set.

FYI Round Robin = Round House (And doesn't nessesarilly mean a home run - You could Round House box to box.) All 3 hots of a 3-phase, and the neutral.

Not to be confused with a Baseball....

Some time ago there was a thread with all of these on it, and then some....

I have always heard a "round robin" in the samecontext as a "full boat", which is three phases and a nuetral.
