It's a 1" PVC from main to sub. Had to come in from outside in very tight spot, enters and extends out to far so I need to 'tuck' it back closer to the wall and then a 5 foot run down to side off the the main panel.

Thanks

Could you be looking for a conduit body? It allows for a sharp 90 degree turn.
Check the Hardware and Tools.Com site to the right of this post. I'm sure that you can also get them at big box stores.

Slowly heat the conduit with a heat gun. It will soften and you can offset it to your heart's delight.
Just be careful not to burn it. Keep the gun moving at all times.

I'll agree with Stan. I recently bent up some 1" pvc with a paint stripper heat gun. Just keep it moving and have some wet towels around to cool it into shape. It takes some time, but you can do it. Just be sure that you don't make too many turns without using access boxes or you'll never feed the wires through.
