Hi,
I am trying to meet the NEC when it comes to multiconductor cables and neutrals.

Does anyone know a source for MC PVC coated cable? I spoke to Southwire and they say this is a special order cable and the minimum is 15K feet. I need #12 and #10 with a single neutral or two neutrals.

Thanks

10-3 is cheaper than a custom cable.

Why does it need to be PVC coated MC?

Check with your local supply house. I use alot of that cable and order it from them. P.T. decks is where most of it goes, works great for the decks.
