    Clay,

    The service disconnect is not in line of sight thus a defect.

    Report what you observe.

    If you were down working on that a/c condenser unit, would you see someone flip the breaker back on? No.

    So either fix it or be prepared to have the a/c technicians surviving spouse's attorney call you regarding an 'avoidable death'.

    I'm with Jerry. Believe it or not, a $20-30 dollar disconnect could actually save someones life, and it sure would help me sleep at night.
