Dec. 7, 2023
Russ looks at some UF cable strewn about on a tree.

In the 300th installment of Moving Violations, Russ looks at some UF cable strewn about on a tree. This is a violation of Sec. 300.11(A) because the cable is not securely fastened in place. In addition, the receptacle box on the tree is missing a cover. Because the installation is in a wet location, the lack of a cover is a violation of Sec. 406.9(B)(1).
