I am trying to install a 60 amp sub panel in my house to power my wife's saltwater tanks. I know I need 6/3 to go from main panel to sub panel. My question is I have to run it along the wall to get to the ceiling then down the wall to get to sub panel. What type of wire and do I need conduit? The sub panel will be just outside the backdoor under the porch.

    Will it be outdoors in any way? – Harper - Reinstate Monica Mar 17 '19 at 23:27
  • Will it be running somewhere where it will be exposed to any sort of physical damage? – ThreePhaseEel Mar 18 '19 at 0:59
  • It will be running along wall up to the garage ceiling. I have a bonus room above garage making it hard to run straight up. the end will drop outside directly into the panel. As my perspective it will be safe from physical damage. – KC130Marine Mar 21 '19 at 23:41
