Wow...not even rated for outdoor.

The whips to my ac units have romex sleeved through them. One guy forgot to unscrew the locknut before wiring...so when he came to screw it in he would have to undo it all...he just left it.

I have an isolator between the amp and the system. I think the arrestor is rated as a ground block so I might be able to remove the ground block.

Your grounding needs to take place at the entrance of the structure. Whats the isolator for?

This is the first grounding point, the coax enters from conduit.


The isolator is for 60 hz interference.

These two at at the plant I work.The first one , someone cut the panel cover right down the middle. Second one, you cant open the panel fully because it is hinged and it hits the stairs.

I like how there's even a sign warning to keep the front clear.
