conduit size for 2-2-2-4


i am running 125 feet of 2-2-2-4 quad urd. 55' is under ground and the remaining will be straped to the joist under my house untill it reaches where my main 200amp panel is. Should I run the wire in a conduit when it comes out of the ground under neath my house? If so, what size PVC should I use?

URD is not a code compliant wiring method once you enter the structure.

That said, I don't think anyone has EVER failed an inspection because of it.
Just sayin'.

I would think ti would be easier to pull individual conductors over the quadplexed cable.
