Entrance Wiring

Hello! I’m more of a home networking guy but am working on an entrance service - the fuse box is being moved more than 6 feet inside the house so a shut off has to be installed next to the meter base - the interior wire has a third wire (labeled 4 in picture) that I’m not sure where to insert or if it’s supposed to replace the neutral run in between the fuse box and shut off - from meter base to shut off is straight forward but not from shut off to breaker box - I attached some photos with reference numbers - any help would be appreciated

Re: Entrance Wiring

# 1, what is up with using a know spy bot operation like google in your business?

You lost me when Google wanted a DNA sample to look at your wiring diagram.

If I hired you, would our relationship be shared with every Tom, Dick and Harry that the Cloud schemer shared it with?

Free stuff has hidden costs silly man.

Why not get a pro, and avoid Burning down a house, or frying a bunch of high dollar tech gear and the data on it????

If you can't understand house wiring....?I Can't imagine your low voltage networks are even average.....

Maybe it is time to move in a trade you can be at least average at?

If you DON'T understand it, DON'T mess with it.


I might be an Idiot, but I know things that You don't: Please wait till after you get my know-how to insult me....
