30year old Townhouse… 100 Amp Service
Exterior 100 Amp main disconnect breaker beside the meter with ground and neutral connected (all good).
The main distribution panel in the garage has been replaced. When they did this they installed it with the lugs at the top. I assume the old one had the lugs at the bottom since the conductors from the exterior main disconnect to the distribution panel in the garage didn’t reach the lugs on the new panel. They should have just flipped the panel over.
Here is how it was dealt with: They spliced an extension onto the neutral so it would reach the neutral bar but did not do the same for the 2 hots so they could reach the lugs. The lugs have some electric tape over them. INSTEAD they installed another 100 Amp breaker (there is already one at the meter) at the bottom of the distribution panel in the garage and attached the incoming hots to this breaker. The neutrals and ground busbars are separated as they are supposed to be in the distribution panel.
This set up seems to work.
Is there any problem with a second 100 Amp disconnect breaker being located in the distribution panel instead of using the lugs as intended?
Any advice is appreciated.
