Hi all , great site 1st post. I'll try to be as concise as possible. I want to add 2 sets of recessed cans on dimmers to existing 2 gang box. I want all 4 switches in same box because of location & convenience. Obviously i have to replace 2g box with a 4g box , rewire 2 exisiting switches and wire up 2 new switches , pull wire and install cans. My question is , for ease of wiring , can i use a hot lead pigtail to wire up the 2 switches on far end of 4g box?
What I do is put on a separate tail for each switch. I prefer not to loop from switch to switch.
Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.
