Hello Russ,
Check 70E requirements for LO/TO and PPE before exposing yourself to shock and arc flash.
Also see NEC 110.16.
You may want to think about a re-do of the video.
Be safe,
Paul

Paul, thanks for reminding us about shock and arc-flash hazards.

I made sure to de-energize the power feeding this disconnect and verify absence of voltage on the feeder before I opened it.
That is standard procedure for any of my videos or photos where I have to have a panel open or when I'm near other exposed energized parts.

Russ
