    Probably one of the most dangerous things I've seen.

    I honestly could not believe it when I opened up the panel to find this.

    At least you can use the clips as a disconnect.

    Meter Pulled, new disconnect to be installed tomorrow. Unbelieveable the things you run into out there. On top of that the homeowner told be its been like that for a year on a home with a 200 amp service.

    Wow, it really makes you wonder how people that do this can sleep at night.

    I know it's tempting to do that last bong hit before work in the morning.......but next time, wait until lunch.........think of the children!

    This is on the main disconnect at the service pole on a manufactured home. This isnt just for the HVAC, its for the whole home. Not to mention someone moved a new home with a 200 amp service in, and just used the 100 amp wire. Everything about this job is wrong and dangerous.
