Replacing a switch
 
1 Attachment(s)
I needed to replace a switch, so I took out the old ones, now What do I do with all of these wires?

Attachment 8510

If you couldn't tell, I am joking about asking where the wires go. But seriously, how confusing would this box be for someone that is inexperienced?

It actually looked pretty nice before I ripped it apart, hots connected to switches with mid wire skinning.

Jamie - I'm pretty sure you must actually live at my house in a parallel dimension. That pic is straight out of my LR.

I know, questions like those are very confusing. But at least they would have given me a picture.

It's all 14. On the far left, the 2 14-2 cables run to the coach lights on the front of the house.
