I hear ya Lusker, but if I did that I'd have to reinvent the wheel as there is a sharp 90 about 8' above the one in the pick.
The system in question was rated at 15.0 amp MOP and some knucklehead ran 8 ga solid to the outdoor disconnect.
Here's what I did - and I hope it works ok long term.
I didn't have 12 in my truck, but had 10 stranded so I pulled the 3 8's and ran 10's. My thinking is the stranded wire will be a little less rigid in the conduit and the difference in wire size should allow more play room.
