Hello.

I need to run approx 90-100 ft 6 ga wire. Ideally I would like to use only one type of wire (to avoid using several boxes). Here's what makes it hard.

First 20 ft - wire goes between raised ceiling in a basement and 1st level floor (approx 1.5 ft above ground level).
Second 20 ft - in a crawl space (it is dry there, it is also approx 1.5 ft above ground level)
Third 20 ft - attached to external wall (wet location) - also above the ground. I think I would run it in Sch 80 conduit.
Forth 20 ft - inside the attached garage 10 ft+ above the floor
the last few feet - behind a drywall.

Is there a wire type / cable suitable to use in those conditions? I thought about copper SER (it can be used indoor and outdoor above the ground, not sure if it can be ran in conduit), but I cannot find it in that gauge. Are there any other options?

Thanks,
J.

can you run PVC all the way?
Rigid PVC may be not an option especially for initial 40 ft. The wires would have to go across floor joists (I hope I use a right term) which have pre-drilled holes. Unfortunately, the holes are not aligned and the wire will have to zig-zag a bit.
BUT, I think that ENT should do the trick.
