|I am adding a standby generator to my house and have a question
| about mounting the auto transfer switch.
| Here is the background, my power enters overhead down a 2"
| ridged metal conduit into a meter base it continues down
| into second box with a 200A main breaker service disconnect
| in it, from there it enters a PVC conduit that continues
| to the ground and runs underground into the house and
| the circuit breaker distribution panel.
| I am putting in a ASCO 200A auto transfer switch in a
| NEMA 3R enclosure.
| Now for the question. The easiest place to mount the switch
| under the main disconnect (just cut the PVC conduit and mount
| If I do this the conduit will exit the transfer switch box at
6" to 9"
| above ground level. Can the top of the conduit and the bottom
| switch box be this close to the ground???
| If this won't fly I'll have a few more questions.
