Of course that was 12 years ago so maybe something has changed. Are you getting any vibration from the allthread rod you have attached from the manifold to the floor joist? I have a blower unit in my basement/garage that is suspended that way. When it kicks on it rattles everything in the dining room directly above it.
Usually when a power feed cannot be anchored (i.e. suspended in the air) code requires it be something other than Romex, usually BX or run inside a conduit, that way it's protected from damage. I also think the BX looks neater then Romex.
