Help With Panel Problem
Hi All. I've got a problem with my panel and I'm not sure how to tackle it without running brand new line :furious:. So I was hoping to find a solution other than that here. I'd like to put an interlock kit in, but slots 2 and 4 are taken.
(For those that don't know about an interlock kit, it allows you to backfeed your panel from a portable generator via a 30 Amp breaker that would be placed in slots 2 and 4. You install a plate on the panel cover that makes it impossible for the breaker and main to be hot at the same time. Thus making it code vs. a more expensive manual transfer switch.)
Not only that, but the electrician that wired the house didn't leave much slack in the line so I can't just move every breaker down two slots. Anyone have any idea on what I might be able to do?
