Re: Da 'Burb

My old '98 Sierra pickup had bench seats in the front (not a fan), and it too had that flip down thing like your jump seat had. I'd have much rather had regular seats with the console you now have.

Re: Garage Sub-panel Wiring Confusion - Please Help (?)

As for the subpanel, I've read that I need to "isolate the neutral from the ground," but I do not know exactly what that means. I'm looking at a sub-panel that is "plug-on neutral ready." Is that the kind I'm looking for? I'm guessing "plug-on neutral ready" is a feature of the panel that means tha...

Re: Running Electric for Dryer

That dryer receptacle looks older, before the implementation of color coding of NM cable. The color codes of white, yellow, and orange correspond to 14, 12, and 10 gauge NM cable sheathing respectively.

Not sure when the color coding started. I want to say some time in the early 2000s or so.

Re: Garage Sub-panel Wiring Confusion - Please Help (?)

Hello. So you already have 1 1/4" PVC between the two buildings, my suggestion would be to use that. The only wire you can use in conduit is THHN/THWN conductors. All of today's conductors are 90°C rated so it should supply up to 60A. I'd go with #6 awg, that should be plenty to supply 60A out there...

Re: Add A Ceiling Light to a Half Hot Outlet and Switch

I'm assuming you did not tamper with any wiring at the switch (because you did not need to).

At this point, please contact an electrician out there to help you.

Re: Add A Ceiling Light to a Half Hot Outlet and Switch

Start over. Disconnect the receptacle entirely, along with all wirenuts and fan out your wires. Determine which hot wire coming into that box is being switched with a multi-meter or circuit tester. Use test leads on the exposed ends of the wires, one on hot and the other neutral or ground. Assuming ...

Re: Add A Ceiling Light to a Half Hot Outlet and Switch

One of your hot wires in your wiring is switched and the other is constantly live. By saying your switch is not working but the light and receptacle are, I assume you mean that receptacle and light are constantly live and on, and you can't turn them off? If so, you need to wire to the OTHER hot wire...

Yes, you got it. You could even replace the receptacle if you no longer need or want it to be switched.

Re: Receptacle Spacing

Honestly I would say if you're running a line to your garage, run 50 amps and have a subpanel out there.

We're in the age of electric cars. So it's good to have serious capacity in the garage.

Nope. My bad. I didn't read "white inside the box". Everything Spruce said is right. You could also run from the receptacle too, whichever is easiest for you.

According to his diagram there's no neutral in the switch box, so he'd need to go from the receptacle up to the light.
