My fault...I robbed a thread and started another discussion.

The garage and the pole are two different residences.

Does this violate the NEC?

The house panel is MLO. How does the pole disconnect comply with 225.32?

225.32 Location. The disconnecting means shall be installed
either inside or outside of the building or structure
served or where the conductors pass through the building or
structure. The disconnecting means shall be at a readily
accessible location nearest the point of entrance of the conductors.

For the purposes of this section, the requirements
in 230.6 shall be utilized.
