Is that main breaker being fed from the bottom? I guess they can use that SEU on the line [load] side of the disconnect then.
They must be clairvoyant. How else would they have known in advance that the 42-circuit limit was going to be history in 2008?
Looks like they splurged and went for the copper panel bus, and look… another main breaker of equal or greater value for safety, and none of that annoying separating of the neutral and grounding conductors.
I guess, at least they have the GEC at the main disconnect. I mean the first main disconnect.
That wasn’t really the point, but I believe many electrical inspectors would consider it to be a violation if the manufacturer of the listed equipment assembly designated line and load lug position by marking or labeling them. I would never do this type of hookup on one of my jobs.
I could not agree more. The frantic mindset of these poseurs, who fancied themselves real estate mavens, is legend. They go into the proposition expecting to make a few cosmetic changes in a few days, then turn around and sell within the first month - at a substantial profit.
During the sell, they love to claim all manner of improvements. Hard as it is to believe, they actually make realtors look ethical.
Unfortunately, these hustlers are not above playing with the electric. For us, this means we will be finding all manner of silliness (and dangers) as we go to repair their 'upgrades.'
"Gotta get it done now now now!" These fools are just like tract house builders.
Some looney toon flipped a house in the next section over, claimed "All new electrical wiring throughout!" Me and my folks went to the open house, and I peeked in the attic. What did I see? A lot of 1950s NM headed towards the back bedroom closet (where the panel is in some of the Levittowners.) All the receptacles were three-prong, and passed the three-light test, as the guy had those testers plugged in a few places.
The house never sold, looked like crap anyways, and now his bank owns it.
Is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?
