He HO wants me to change out the panel and then add a dryer circuit. His house is concrete block so i was just going to go underground. Im not sure what i will be getting into with all the weatherheads so i dont hack it up like it is now. Might just do the dryer and leave the rest.
Any thoughts.

Yes it is. Im afraid of what i will get in to if i change it. I know hes not wanting to spend alot so i might try and talk him out of it.
I always ignore the part about the customer not wanting to spend a lot because that is none of my concern.

Give him your price to fix it properly. If he doesn't want to spend a lot, he won't use you. If he decides that he needs it done, you got a job at the price you want. Win-win for you.

i have a feeling there's also a panel inside behind the meter. You'll find doubled up SEC's on the meter.
Thats kind of what i thought to. Im not one to judge people but from just standing outside and kind of seeing in i dont think i want to go inside to do anything.

Do not agree. Drive on past on your way to the affluent neighborhoods.
