So how about if I have thhn 2 blacks, 2 whites, and a green. Then run them in the 3/4 seal tight about 50 ft long on the exterior of the home? With connector and 1900 boxes at each end? Theres nothing wrong with running seal tight 50ft on an exterior wall is there? Rather than pvc?

Do they still make wire with only a THHN rating? Everything that comes from my supplier is rated for both. 50' of seal
tight on the exterior of a house??? That will look interesting but won't add any value to the house!!!

I on this job for a homeowner who is selling and has violations. I have to run (2) dedicated circuits for the kitchen and bathroom outlets. My question is that it will be inspected and is it acceptable to run the (2) 12/2 romexs through the basement then to the outside wall into 3/4 seal tight just as a sleeve. No connectors. Just through the seal tight as protection for the cable. About a 75ft run with 3 90 degree bends. So exiting out of the home then entering into the home just as a sleeve?
sleeving UF might be acceptable....~CS~
