Can this product be used in below freezing weather

Asked by CJ3 November 6, 2017
1
Answer

Yes, as long as it doesn’t exceed the temperature rating listed on the product. The above advice is based upon the current edition of the National Electric Code (NEC). 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. Check your local building codes before you start any wiring and cable electrical project and be sure to obtain required permits. When your work is complete, always have it inspected for compliance with local codes to ensure that it has been safely installed.

What is the diameter of this cable?

Asked by Ajay June 16, 2017

Answers

Your answer is shown right on The Home Depot website for this product under "Specifications." Says, ".665 in," which is why, for my application on my cargo trailer/camper/ toy hauler conversion, I bought 3/4" EMT steel conduit to run it through instead of the 1/2" EMT steel conduit I had on hand.

Can I use this for 120 volt for a camper and run it 100 feet?

Asked by Rm48 March 31, 2016
1
Answer

This product (10-3 SOOW) is rated for 30 Amps, so if your camper needs 30A or less and the overcurrent device (breaker) feeding the circuit is rated 30A or less, this will work. This product is for temporary power and must have a plug on at least one end. For a 100' run, voltage drop may be an issue and you may need to upsize the cable. For example, if you are using the full ampacity of the cable (30A) you would need to upsize to a 6-3 SOOW to keep the voltage drop below 3% (industry standard recommendation). You can check the voltage drop using the voltage drop calculator available at: http://www.southwire.com/support/voltage-drop-calculator.htm. The above advice is based upon the current edition of the National Electric Code (NEC). 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. Check your local building codes before you start any wiring and cable electrical project and be sure to obtain required permits. When your work is complete, always have it inspected for compliance with local codes to ensure that it has been safely installed.

Can this cord be used to make an outdoor extension cord?

Asked by hd December 11, 2015
2
Answers

Yes you can. The SOOW stands for S- standard duty 600 volt rated. If it was SJ that stands for junior duty and is rated for 300 volt. The OO stands for oil resistant outer jacket and individual wires. If it was a single O it would be oil resistant outer jacket only. The W stands for approved for outdoor use. Sjoow is smaller diameter.

The product was great, the shipping not so much. Shipping took almost 2 weeks (I bought it locally while waiting). The quality of the wire is what I’d expect from Southwire, heavy insulation and very flexible.

The product is as advertised however I ordered and paid for 15 feet and received 14'-7". The only reason I ordered the wire online was because I could only get the 30amp RV Plug online and therefore ordered everything I needed for the project at one time.

The product is great! It works as it should. I don't like having to order items online, and wait until they're available for pickup at my local store. How about stocking stuff?? Also, the wire was cut about 4 inches short! This stuff isn't cheap, It's a good thing that I went a little over on my measurement. smh
