Weather head

I'd call for a weatherhead to be installed. I doubt any one would argrue with you.

I would agree as long as it didn't become a sticking point with no documentation to back my call.

That could be a very expensive fix.

I'm not comfortable with calling it wrong without something in black and white.

I'll keep digging. I'll find it.

I believe the NEC requires a "service head" with one exception. The exception is that the SE cable can be formed into a "gooseneck" and the SEC jacket be sealed with weather-resistant thermoplastic tape.

The picture in the original post is not a gooseneck. I can scan a diagram I have of one, if you'd like.

Please do. Thanks.

Given that a weatherhead goes on top of a mast... I am not sure what good it would do![:-dev3]

I just happen to have one without a mast on my house, Smart ass.

There's enough Al in that TV antenna to pay for a weatherhead. [:)]

OK, now we can pick YOUR place apart. [:)]

You've got a bare neutral going into your weatherhead. Doesn't that need to be an insulated cable?

Also, I see you hate painting as much as I do.

They're all like that around here.

That was supposed to happen a few weeks ago. Painted houses are over rated.

I make my share of smartass remarks around here too. Just so ya know, I was laughing when I wrote that.

That pic shows Type SE cable. The neutral is bare. no issues.
