Replacing manufactured home light switch to dimmer. Why 3 circuits?


Quote:
and what do you mean "second switch plug"?
Not "plug", but "lug". Terminal. Screw.

One black wire on one screw, one on the other. If your dimmer has wires rather than screw connections, connect the one for supply to the black bundle, and the one for load to the other black.
