jRE: Can I “Piggy Back” two adjacent sub-panels

Question

Dominick, This is in response to your earlier answer to this same question….. 1st off… I enjoy your youtube videos and find them very helpful. Thanks.

Do you mind explaining why my proposed set up does not work? From my understanding of electricity… it seems sound; but I do recognize I am not an expert (maybe I know enough to be dangerous). In my field of expertise I know that codes are sometimes written to be “idiot proof” to the point of preventing things that work.

I think knowing the detail of why this should not should not be done will help me and other diy’ers have a better understanding.

Thanks again for all you do.

  1. The correct response is way too involved to explain here. Code is one thing, we got that for sure. But doing what you want to do, is for a better choice of words dumb, being nice of course. Sorry man, just way too hard to try to explain why not to do that. Not to mention the connections alone is a bad idea.
