    Think about what the oil resistant wires supply... maybe a grease pit, pump or other equipment where oil is likely contaminant?

    Had some extra wire and did not feel like running to the supply house.

    Oh yeah. You really did not use the words sub when referring to any panel did you

    From what I hear around here there is no such thing as a sub panel even though I have used the term all my life.

    Were you in the navy? They have a fleet of boats which operate underwater and use those sub panel things.

    Best reason of all, and very common too.

    Hmmmm ... whenever I have a sub for dinner, it gets stuck in my throat or my stomach, ... never tried sticking in through my ears.
