Code Question of the Daytextbook

    CQD 7/7/20

    Hello CQD,

    I want to thank you for the great service you provide to the electrical industry. I’m sure it’s challenging trying to answer code questions others will critique.

    In your response to the Code Question from Wednesday May 20th, one could add that the requirements of 300.4(D) would apply as well. I believe 300.4 lays out the exact scenario that Scott is dealing with. Thanks again for all your hard work!
