If you run the individual conductors in the conduit, you will only need one #10 ground... and be sure to keep the neutrals (white) matched to the appropriate hot.

Is there any way you can get the conduit so it goes into the living space or transfer over to SER cable to get inside so you could install a panel in an accesible location.


With Electricity there is the right way to do it and the dead way. Just because it works does not make it safe.
