However, when the inside cover is on at the main panel, there is no indication that there is a subpanel anywhere. Client likes to go to the main panel for all his electrical needs and is not used to having two panels. He would be more comfortable with one disconnect that shuts off the electricity to both panels. Although I assured him this did (with appropriate disclaimers since I'm not a CA licensed electrician), I told him I would post this question on the NACHI board where he could visit and read the comments. So comment away.
Frankly, I am used to seeing subpanel disconnects located in the main panel, which I told him.
