I've got an active leak (probably one of the infamous Michigan rod holes) behind the electrical panel in my basement. It's just seeping at the moment, but after seeping comes dribbling and after dribbling comes gushing, right next to all that electrical stuff --- bad. I need to get in there and plug the rod hole. Can I take the electrical panel off the wall to get at the rod hole? How do I do that? Do I need to turn the power off?
Clarification: I would like to avoid having to disconnect everything. That would require an electrician or a lot of work. Can I just move the panel?
