This question is from 500 ft. 2-2-2-4 Black Stranded AL USE MHF Cable

Considering attic access and the drop to an existing (in wall) load panel, I would like to use the smallest allowable conduit for a portion of the run. It appears this wire will fit (snugly) in 1", but I don't know if that is too much fill per code. Can anyone give authoritative guidance? (BTW: the majority of the run will be in 2" conduit. I'm just looking at options for my space restricted portion of the run.)

Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide.

Answer: 
You can drop down to 1 1/2" to remain at 40% conduit fill. That insulation is RHH which is thicker than thhn, etc. Do a search for raceway fill calculator and use one of those to find your answer. If your downpipe is less than 2 feet you can get away with 1 1/4 inch.
I used the Electrician2 dot com calculator to get these results.

Answer: 
Per the NEC, the maximum allowable conduit fill for this installation is 40%. The minimum size conduit to stay below the 40% allowance is 1 ¼”. You can verify this using the online conduit fill calculator at:

I have underground conduit between the house and the garage. When I enter the basement can the wire be left open and attached to the structure with staples or clamps. The distance in the structure to the main panel is about 80' through and unfinished basement and crawl space. Or does it require conduit.

Answer: 
Once Mobile Home Feeder cable enters a building, you must use it as Type RHH/RHW-2 building wire conductors and per the NEC they are required to be protected in a raceway (conduit). 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 www.nfpa.org/freeaccess.
And remember that it is far better to hire a professional electrician Read More

Free access to the latest version of the NEC is available online at www.nfpa.org/freeaccess. The NEC and local building codes regulate the types of wire and cable that can be used in specific electrical applications, as well as the manner of installation.
