Come on. Don't you know every project needs to include at least 1 additional trip to the store to get something you forgot. So you end up buying a few extra things just in case. Making sure you have everything you need BEFORE you start a project is just bragging.
I just did my additional trip before doing the work that required being outside. I couldn’t even start.
Get the unit, it doesn’t have a cable whip (unlike the unit it is replacing) and so I spend the first day getting the wire and a 6’ flexible conduit kit. Next day, realize my crescent wrench isn’t large enough to remove the old cable whip from the junction box, and the fitting that came in the kit for the whip really should be replaced with something easier to work with so I’m not trying to rotate a 20lb box+power cable while threading the end of the whip into the junction box (because I had pre-installed the fitting on the end of the whip and assumed the junction box was drilled, not threaded), so there goes another trip/day.
Whoever thought it was a bright idea to put those single-use fittings in the kits for flexible conduit needs their head examined. Especially when better fittings are not expensive.
