Should have looked it up.
I agree, I usually research this but I was in a bind with time after picking 36 straight 2x4 and you can guess how long that took when at your local Lowes

I seriously doubt there are 36 straight 2x4's in our local Lowes & Home Depot together. Good luck.

Subpanel Beginner Questions


Another silly question here

Does the order of the red and black matter on the 65AMP circuit in the main panel?

haha...I counted all the 2x4s I put on the side and it was 78 bad ones to my 36 good ones.

I felt bad putting the 78 bad ones back because someone was going to end up with them unless they wanted to go through the 78 to find 1 good one

The electrons do not know the insulation colors. It does not matter, the colors help to identify the function of the conductor.
