Is it permissible by code to use an under sized neutral(#4)in a feeder for a mobile home? The reason I ask is because the supply house gave me #2246 feeder cable instead of the usual #2224 and I didn't notice it until the cable was pulled in to the conduit. Code reference please Thanks

I am curious about the cable being used inside conduit. Is it listed to be used that way and does it have an insulated equipment grounding conductor? Thanks in advance.
