3-way dimmer question


I have not been able to find this question posted, so I will start a new topic.

I understand how to wire a 3-way dimmer,3-way switch, and lights configuration. In the wiring diagram with the dimmer, the order is: Power source/dimmer/switch/lights. Can I swap the sitch and the dimmer to be a :power source/switch/dimmer/lights?

Thanks for any input.

Yes. A 3 way dimmer can be put into the circuit anywhere a 3 way switch is located.
