Default Re: 3 vs 4 wire feed to garage

Also note that a detached structure requires a grounding source (ground rod) whether it is a 3 or 4 wire remote panel. The ground rod can not be used as the only source of grounding and must be tied to the neutral if only a 3 wire feed. Best to upgrade to 4 wire but how many of us would do that.
