2-2-4 SEU - Smaller Neutral?


I too figured that is what you have.

To answer one of your original questions, yes it is permissible and common for the neutral to be sized smaller than the hots.

Sounds like you have two services on the building, one East and one West. The services should be grouped.

Unless there is a main at the meter, in which everything at the house would technically be a 'sub' panel
