Simple Conduit Question.

I'm going to be running some 10/3 wire for a generator. I also will be upgrading my garage for 20 amps, so I'll be running some 12/2 for that. They are both being run along the same area of the house.

For the 10/3 I am running the wire in some conduit. Is there any reason why I couldn't also run the 12/2 inside the SAME conduit? Or would I need to run it (the 12/2) in a separate conduit? Thanks.

Simple Conduit Question.

If the conduit is big enough then you can run them both in the conduit as long as the conduit is only for protection. If you terminate both ends in junction boxes then you must run individual THHN/THWN wires.

Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.

Yes, it's only for protection. Can PVC pipe be used?
