Bob, Scd 40 is OK, and will hold up longer than the cable. More important
is to "crown it" -- that is keep the center higher than both ends or
otherwise ensure that ALL condensate will go down and out. If ends are
turned up, drill drain holes. Loose fiber glass plugs will keep keep out
vermin. Use at least one size bigger than you think you need, and include
a piece of dacron rope in your "bundle" to add the cable you forgot, next
year! If you want to get fancy, use a short piece of the UV res. stuff
on the exposed end(gray) - get it at Home Depot, etc in the elec. dept.
Use NO el's - only 90 degree sweeps if you require a turn.
