    CQD 8/18/22

    Hello. I look forward to the CQD every morning. Makes my day. Does a 1 1/2 inch EMT with a weathertight connector need a Myers’s hub when coming out of an outdoor panel? The connector is on the right side of the panel near the top. The connector has a rubber washer between the panel and connector.

    Thank you for your help enlightening us every day.
