    It is cheaper to run individual 10 gauge wires, especially through conduit.


    I am glad everything worked out. Yuo got some good time with you son also.
    thanks! It was a great experience for both of us.

    Nothing illegal, I hope, with running romex in conduit?

      Not that I know of. It's just harder to do.
      Next time, run individual wires and you'll see.

        Romex in conduit

        I'm still following this thread, as an interested amateur.

        I thought there are two potential problems with running NM in conduit. One being excessive heat buildup. Secondly, running this configuration underground, in which case the cable would still have to be underground rated, due to moisture issues, and breakdown of jacket and paper liner.

          SO true!!! My son's a rock climber and has arms like Arnold used to and he still had trouble feeding it through some of the bends. Live & learn, I guess.
