I am considering using 10-2 to wire the opposite side of my house because of 12-2 voltage drop over 60ft distance. My house is 54x58 (see blueprint below). I called up Leviton and tech support says that their receptacles can handle from 14 to 10 gauge wire in the terminals.
If i do go this route: 1. I'll have continuous runs of wiring without interruptions 2. not much voltage drop as compared to 12-2 3. Saves me time and money (2-2-2-1 SER runs for about $7/ft, i'll need around 70ft.
Any suggestions or is there something i am not considering?
