Grounding an ungrounded exterior circuit


Wouldn't that make his bulbs last longer, with lower supply voltage? I'd go for that option if the light level was acceptable.

I connected it the way described previously, utilizing one of the white wires as the ground. Everything works well and the lights look fantastic! Just enough to see where you're walking but not enough to pollute the night sky or to ruin night fishing.
