Agree disagree? What do you use on d/w breakers for locks. How (or why bother) do you protect nm from physical damage under a sink.

#1 - Is this a 'new' inspector ?
My guess, yes, perhaps 30-40 yrs old. Code suave - and wants you to know it.
Be nice, 'IT' may be around a while (
). Yet stand your ground. You must know the 'code' as well.
#1-A - If you installed a rec and cord - There's your disconnect.
#2 - Technically - Yes. you should have that in flex or something, then you must secure it.
But it seems like he wants to do his 'job'
. Justify the public funds paying him/her (all well and good).
Remember though - What was 'ACCEPTED' - before - may not be now.
. So know your 'code'. Never!!! get in a gun fight with a knife.
Napolean - Ask - politely - for any code references that you may feel in conflict with your install.
But always in a manner to let the Inspector 'off' the hook.
(Makes them feel better and less likely to bust yo arse later. Not that they ever would).
