    LOL... But in order to use the punch outs, they would have needed more seal tite.

    Had one similar to this. We were doing installs for a new restaurant and the electrician decided to mount the service disconnects on the condensing units using 2 inch screws. Right into the coil loops. His boss was real thrilled about it when we let him know.

    Oh, yeah, I've got a roof with about a dozen RTU's like that. Took hours on the first PM to loosen the disconnects so I could see the tags & write the info on the door. I think was even raining that day...

    The local utility here loves to send their guys out to hook up those remote controlled DCU switches on outdoor units. Their preferred installation spot? Right over the data plate.
