Hi Pat,


It's kinda like a crawl space but with more headroom. ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif) ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif)

BTW, a crawl space is like a slab but with conciderable soil errosion

Regards

Gerry

Do you have electrical panels in basements?


We do not have basements on Guam.

I cannot imagine why one would want to a panel away from the majority of the distribution.

If the poanel is not in the basement, it makes no difference if the basement is flooded or not.

How would I know that the basement is flooded when I always start on the outside eusa_think.gif That’s assuming I ever come across a basement.

I picked c because there was no mention that the service panel was in the basement that was flooded.

Ahh, but how do you know the main breaker is over what the panel is rated for? Many times the rating is behind the dead front cover.


I pick E. (when the panel is located on the exterior, it's raining, and I'd be standing in a puddle ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif) )
