Not only I do mark behind the device cover but I marked in the junction box as well because some case the device cover is missing and you still have second spot to look for.

But some situation called for to get the circuit tracer then I will use them and 90% of the time I useally get them at the first time.

the electricians who installed the panel wrote the wrong info on the door, so I don't have any more space to write there.
Laquer thinner and a rag will take care of that. I erase and clean up panel markings all the time. WD40 works if the mis marks are fresh

Carburetor cleaner (the spray stuff) will remove felt-tipped pen marks instantly, regardless of age. Just spray some on a rag, and it wipes it right off.


P.S. Be careful, it'll also remove the factory amp markings on breakers!
