What you have there is a MWBC, but could be considered a feeder by some.
The conductors from the main service panel to the sub-panel are feeders. They are not a MWBC.

Critique my Sub Panel


The inspector was here about an hour and half ago. I think he was in a hurry because it was close to quitting time. He took a peek at the panel and asked me what size the SER cable (AL 4-4-4-6) was and what size breaker (60 amp) I had at the main. He said OK and signed off. Never looked at the main panel.



Thanks to all that gave me feedback.

Damn, I forgot to ask if he considered my sub panel feeder a branch circuit or service feeder.

On to phase 2
