Thanks! Exactly what I was looking for.

EDITED: Additional question. The subpanel feed uses 4/0-4/0-4/0-2/0 AL SER. Is that allowable under the current NEC? If not, would I likely need to upgrade...

Unfortunately the picture is all I have to work with ... these windows were removed some 15 years ago and replaced with one small double hung window in each room. Everything else was drywalled over....

Thanks Vic - makes sense now that you say it. I thought it'd be a single unit and couldn't find it anyway ... ugh. Does make things a lot easier :)

Need help IDing / locating this window type

Long story short: found an old picture showing some original windows in part of my house, and I'd like to see if I can get something similar to put back in. But I'm not even sure what this type of...

From what I can figure out, the feed comes into the bottom of the GE disconnect box on the right (meter is outside in a stand-alone enclosure - underground feed). One thing that isn't clear to me is...

Makes sense, thanks for catching that. With the incredible mess in the panel and the excessive number of circuits given the number of rooms in this side of the house, I'm inclined to eventually...

This is a better closeup. It doesn't look like Zinsco at first glance, but my knowledge on their looks is limited.

Yes, that was very helpful thanks.

I actually just noticed in one of the other shots it's a 4 wire feed to the far panel, so I'll just need to make sure there's no neutral bonding in that one....

Some general panel / feed questions

I'm looking at a house and I just got all the pictures from the inspection back. It's an oddly complicated older system, and I'm wondering about a few things.

So I just realized I may have a small complication: the service feed goes into a separate 200 AMP main breaker box and then has a feed to my main panel. It looks like the neutral in the main panel...

I will be modifying the generator to float the neutral and create a bonding plug for use in the 240V outlet (or put in a bonding switch) in case I need to use it with individual loads. Too much of a...

Yeah the UPS thread is actually what reminded me to ask in the forum.

Anyone have experience with APC's UTS transfer switch line?

I'm reconsidering my backup power design, and while I was perusing the Honda generator section I stumbled on the APC UTS10BI transfer panel. It's advertised hardly anywhere, so I'm having trouble...

And a follow-on question: is it indeed very unsafe (i.e., to the level of possibly electrocuting yourself) to have double bonded neutrals (at generator AND switch)? If so, I find it very odd that the...

Gen-tran transfer switch, bonded neutral generator, disconnect generator ground?

So I found out too late that connecting a bonded-neutral generator to a non-neutral-switching transfer switch might be a tad dangerous due to the loop. I'm now wondering whether to get a different...
