Running wire


Hello,

In Texas, I ran up to three 12/3 wires through the same wall access holes with no issues when the inspector looked at it.

Ya, if they don't fit, don't do it.


and by fit, I mean there needs to be room in the hole to move freely or you can tear the sheath as you pull the NM through the hole.

Don't forget the fire-block caulking when done.
