comment Electrical engineering background, can I do electrical work on my house
But our question comes from someone who understands whats going on. He admits that he understands electrical systems. He understands what NM is. He understands how to do this. IT WAS PART OF THE QUESTION. This is totally unrelated to the McDonalds Woman. She was out to make a buck. This is a homeowner who wants to upgrade his house in a perfectly reasonable way. In a sound manner. What are you guys afraid of?

comment How can I add a 30 amp breaker for an RV connection?
Planning to put a connector there for the RV to plug into? L 14-30 twist lock I assume. You can also use this plug to back feed the house with the generator upon extended power outage. Just be sure to keep the main breaker off when back feeding.

I advise against mixed metals. Use Copper. Can you park the thing closer? Dang 500' is long run.

comment Can I use a red wire as a neutral?
Further, I see your point that there aught to be a white wire present and that Rob should use it for this project.

comment Can I use a red wire as a neutral?
Help me understand this, Petey. We run 12/2 to 240v loads all the time wiring in the black and the white. We also use the white as a carrier when wiring a light switch. A little wrap of black tape indicates. Why is it that we can't wrap a red wire with white tape to indicate it's the neutral?

comment Is it stupid to replace redwood siding with Hardi board or LP SmartSide?
I always start in the back and finish in the front. Two reasons, you get better as you go, and the motivation to get to the glory of the curb appeal. Just a thought.
