    I know many have done this already but it's always good to check out different installs. Upgraded service from a 100amp panel to a 200amp panel. For a car charger and future shop in utility room. Already had a 200amp buried service to the meter but only 100amp into the house. They also ran 80' of #6/3awg Teck armour cable from the basement to between the garage doors at the front. Installed a Nema 14-50 for now. Tesla wall charger upgrade when I get the car.

            It took me most of the night and today but I think I'm almost getting near to the point where I'm starting to consider thinking about whether or not there's a chance that with some serious thought involved and possibly a little counselling I could box it in and keep the door closed.
            That or completely disconnect the 40 amp stove circuit involved, remove the wire and as our ancestors did, cook over an open fire.
            I guess they didn't see me yesterday as I ran down the road behind their truck screaming for them to come back and fix it.

              I don't even think you'd have to disconnect anything. Just remove 4 staples, swap the wire positions, and put the staples back.

              I would *so* do that. :D

                But then I would have to turn the main off to switch the breakers. AND THEN I would have to change my Apple Watch to chronograph and reset all the clocks in the house one at a time so they were all synchronized. Do you have any idea how much the grandfather clock I inherited from my great uncle drives me crazy? ;)
