Conduit Size


I'm installing a 2-2-2-4 SER cable between house and detached garage. I'm assuming the SER is not direct bury, so what is the minumum size NEC allows using gray PVC conduit for this cable. I will have a LB at the house and garage.

SER is not listed for use underground, with or without raceway.

Need to use USE, xhhw, or THWN.
