Electrical Service to Guest House
 
The 3 wire service to the guest house runs through a meter....then a 100 amp disconnect. Through some underground conduit...up the outside wall....into the attic(No conduit).....then into a 100amp panel. It has a 100 amp main breaker. There is a ground rod. My question is this...should the ground and neutral be linked together?

Thanks
CM

How old is the installation?
What wires were run between the buildings?
Where are you located?

Some information that will help:
You said there is a ground rod; where is the large ground wire currently connected - in the outdoor 100 amp disconnect?

How many wires run between the outside disconnect and the main panel. Are the wires individual or are they in a sheath?
