Does this wire also carry the RHH/RHW classification?

Asked by: gary
Yes. When used as RHH, conductor temperatures shall not exceed 90°C in dry locations. When used as RHW-2 or USE-2, conductor temperatures shall not exceed 90°C in wet or dry locations.While this particular item is rated USE-2/RHH-RHW-2, not all USE-2 conductors are additionally rated for RHH/THW-2.

Will this wire be sent in sections or continuous feet? How do you order the quantity in feet?

Asked by: Steph
If you need 25 feet, you would put 25 in the quantity field. It comes in continuous feet. If you need 3 (10 footers), you would create 3 different line items at quantity of 10 each. Hope this helps. You can also contact your local Home Depot store and see if they cut this product in a store near you.

is this the cable used to go from meter box to breaker box, if so will it handle the load of my 220 a/c window unit , my 220 stove and water heater?

Asked by: mike
Yes – this conductor can be used from the meter box to the panel. Based upon NEC Table 310.15(B)(16), #1 AL USE/RHH/RHW-2 conductors are rated for 100 Amps at 75°C (not more than 3 current carrying conductors in a raceway). You need to check the maximum current draw of those appliances to see if this size circuit can supply them safely. Also, the main disconnect should be rated for 100 Amps or less (to protect the conductors). If you do not have a copy of the NEC (NFPA 70), you can now access it (and other NFPA codes and standards) for free on the web at And remember that it is far better to hire a professional electrician for jobs like this than risk injury or fire by doing it yourself. Your safety and the safety of those around you are more important than any money you might save.
