I'm not here to argue with you as you are quite likely correct.
The question I have is this subject seems to have gotten you hot under the collar for some reason.
I'm just wondering why.
Why is it so important to you what I do on my own property? If I scotch tape my wires to a tree how does that affect you?
I'm not talking about polluting it or causing runoff into the river or draining a wetland.
I'm talking about an electrical code violation that can not harm anyone but myself if anything went wrong.
From your handle I assume you ride a motorcycle?
How many motorcyclists are killed each year in America?
Want to lay odds that more motorcyclists are killed than there are by Billy Bob Wiring each year?
How would you like it if they passed more and more restrictive MC laws each year? Till only a
select few could pass the exams and go through the continuing education to ride one.
What would that do to your sense of freedom?
There risks in everything we do man.
We all try to be prudent, lawful and self preserving within the bounds of having a little fun.
We weigh the odds and decide if the risks are worth the fun we're having.
We weigh the laws against our liberty.
I don't own a mororcycle. I think they are too dangerous. I don't think we need a Nationional Mortorcycle Code though. We've got enough laws and codes to follow.
Go weigh the odds. Make your own decision.
Then go have some fun and don't let the safety gurus stop you.
I am thinking about paralleling a couple of wires to heat my deer stand. I asked the questions here so I could weigh the odds.
There are risks involved but I might be willing to run them even if you are not.
How does that affect you any more than your riding affects me?

Are you actually being serious or are you "playing us" ?
Jack leg installations or repairs eventually costing everybody with higher insurance and healthcare rates.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeYou 'electricians' & 'electric experts' are just big heads trying to protect your jobs that think you are the ONLY ones that can do anything! My garage door opener & light work just fine powered through 18ga copper clad steel telephone wire. You might want to research you beloved NEC on that. But I don't care. Just get her done! Oh, and you can call me all the nasty names you want, as again, I don't care! We already know the facts & simply choose to ignore.

If you were really good, 20 gauge could have been used.

With electrical work it is best to do it right or not do it at all. Some questions just seem sorta dumb to an electrician. Can I parallel #12 s is one of them. It doing a type of work that takes some training and knowledge of NEC to do right . Most are from people too cheap to hire an electrician but in no way can do an installation that meets code. How good of an electrical answer are you going to get on an antique tractor forum anyhow?

Two thoughts DS;
Are you implying your answer is also no good because it's on a tractor forum?
And would you suggest that the people below should have hired a qualified person to drive their motorcycles for them?

Are you kidding me? You think I get out a code book to answer electrical questions. The trick is to make up answers stupider than the questions. I have made up plenty of answers-all wrong !
