Why SER? 3 phase? Ordinarily if I could get away with it, a regular romex connector with the round opening though some want a water proof connector on the bottom of can/disconect, whatever. Shunk had a suggestion for just such a thing and forgot what it was.

I think he is looking for seR connector
like these
you can get them from home depot or ace hardware.

these are for internal use
se connectors are used when exposed to weather

If you can bring the SER into one of the pre-punched KO's in the 3R meter can you don't need a WP connector.

But I'm wondering why SER? Is there a disconnect ahead of the meter?

FWIW, what I said stands true. Unless there is some other requirement I'm not aware of.

Arlington has one for 2/0 maybe not on that page but on a different one. We up here pretty much have 2 flavors, #2 and 4/0 for obvious reasons, but they come in a bunch of sizes. Bridgeport would be another brand. What brand do they carry?

We do an awful lot with se here. Had one today, customer lost a leg, The meter socket was rotten and had burned a hole in the side of the can. The se was all frayed up at the head. Poco here is great. There in less than an hour. New can, new se riser and new se into the fuse panels. Easy money. Don't fear the SE.

wow...supplies houses here are like, "Huh?" and so am I!:laughing:
I see them around, SE installs, but the SH's got no idea. I would encounter the cursed connectors when doing new installs but wth would someone want to reuse some fancy romex (SE) for their new service? :laughing:
Forgive me, I'm biased. :thumbsup:

It's one of those regional things and there are some towns that won't allow it. It's what many of us are used to. In the end it all works. Don't want to start the usual thread...
