Nothing specific. It's just that it's at lower-leg level on the front face of a 6x6 at the end of the catwalk to the house. Pretty sure that's "subject to damage" or whatever the NEC wording is. And for such locations, pretty sure Sch40 PVC is not code-compliant. But people here seem to think it's largely ignored, so maybe I won't worry about it.What is the nature of the physical damage that this conduit is likely to experience? Lawnmower? Car? Projectile firewood? Nothing?
I don't have any experience with EMT (except as deck railing). So I just can't figure out how to transition from the liquid-tight to EMT. I don't see any female adapters for EMT listed. (I'd still have EMT coming from where the PVC ends under the catwalk, to negotiate the weird angles coming up towards the EVSE. But I'd cut it off and transition to EMT, if I could figure out how).if you are going to sleeve the liquid tite in emt why not just use the emt without the liquid tite?

I can't find such a thing. Unless you mean a compression type, but do those work for liquid-tight ? As best I can tell, liquid-tight doesn't have a standard O.D. but is usually larger than EMT.Couple the liqi tight fitting to an EMT box connector with a female x female conduit coupler

The 1 in. Rain-Tight Coupling is ideal for securing and bonding 2 lengths of EMT conduit together in a wet location. The galvanized-steel construction is insulated and up to code. It is highly corrosionwww.homedepot.com
Also, the EMT conduit bodies seem to have a socket with a set-screw. So I'd transition from liquid-tight to a short piece of EMT with the double-female compression thing ? Or maybe the liquid-tight can go straight into the set-screw opening in the LB ? Sorry to be dense ...
leave the oring on don't use pipe dope it is not code compliantTake the nut and oring off, connect it to the liqi tight fitting with a simple female x female connector...use pipe dope on it for rain tightnessSigma's Rain Tight EMT Compression Connectors are used to secure and terminate steel EMT conduit to an outlet box or enclosure in a dry or damp location. They are recommended for indoor and outdoor applications.www.menards.com
Yes, I do, as described.As to how to transition from PVC to liquid tight, I thought you already had that done? Usual method is female NPT adapter on PVC end with a male liquid tight adapter on liquid tight end.
never seen the stuff beforeSo I found this stuff that I liberated from Spectrum when they were burying cable in our 'hood. They run it first and encase the actual cable inside it. Seems tough as nails.
So I just ran it up to above weed-eater and boot height, and then down to where the liquid-tight bends back under the catwalk to connect to the PVC conduit.

that sucks you are doing their job. i hit a romex in the ceiling and replaced and repaired it just like they were supposed to. they damaged it.I spent a good 12 hours digging conduit today, after a fence company ignored my markings and requested fence location, instead putting the damn thing right on the red line that indicated "high voltage / no dig". No kidding, they punched thru the conduit in at least two locations, and destroyed the wiring inside.
I had the intended track painted in yellow, and even marked the proposed post locations with flags, but for some reason they moved the whole thing over 5-6 feet from that location and dug right on top of the red line designating conduit.
Long day, started digging around 7am, went until dark, and then made the Lowes run to pick up the required repair materials.
