outside RV outlet box to house flex ok?


One guy said i did it wrong and i didnt lsiten to to others advise...at that time i had only been told what i could NOT do..which i was thankful for. If one read my last psot i said i dumped the whole outside box. the nipple was only 2"long and just enough to get through the walland stucco and have enough threading for the edge cover. the Romex sheathing stopped right where it enters the nipple so wiers proteced and no sheathing to get hot in conduit. AS far as spacether was plenty space on side but that 10gauge solid is a ***** to bend in circles to allow the 6". suprising how different from 12 gauge.

The reason I was wanting the box outisde was to keep with my story of temporary power..better off just letting it look professional and simple

you cannot strip NM and use it in conduit, period.

So, what do you have intentions now for the install? Why don't you describe what you intend on doing and we'll try to help you do a better install and make sure it is code compliant.

What does a kitchen island have to with a box mounted on a wall outside?
If you read my post, I told him he could go through the wall into the back of the box with NM without a nipple. But no further.

with "outside" being the operative word here.

While Lyons may have been referring to any NM in conduit and if so confused the situation, the fact is; JV and the entire post other than that, if applicable, was addressing NM in conduit outside.
