Hello, I'm developing a piece of property in Western North Carolina with a house, a small cabin, and an RV spot. I have buried 800 feet of Triplex URD Cable and I'm a bit concerned that I should have buried a fourth conductor (an equipment grounding conductor). The diagram below shows how I thought the wiring should be done, but I think I have the grounding wrong. I understand that the Neutral-Ground Bonding should only be done in the main panel and sub panels need to have the equipment grounding conductor, but what I don't understand is why these would be considered sub panels. If there is a way I can avoid digging another 800 foot trench, I would be eternally grateful. Also, considering the Meter Socket is 200' from the house, do I need disconnects at the socket for the house and the run to the Cabin?
