I bought 200amp(?) wire to run from 200amp outside box to 100amp inside box. Electrician says wire can not be used to hook up t0 100 amp box . He wants me to buy new smaller wire, but I will lose $300 by doing that because I cant take the wire I have back. Can I put a 200amp box inside and use the wire that I have?
Scar, you first hafta ask him why. Maybe it has something to do with the size of the terminals, which you can easily haywire
Yes, he said that the larger wire was too big to fit into the 100 amp box. What does haywire mean.
Scar, haywire means makeshift, something contrived
