Thanks HooKoo for the basics lesson.

And sorry, Duke, for temporarily hijacking your thread.

...speaking of such, can any of the professionals comment on the loose wire in the panel? I know what it is, but is it okay to leave loose as pictured?

I'm not sure what code says exactly, but I'm learning that it seems black electrical tape apparently has no purpose in residential wiring except to mark white wires in switch loops (and the like) as "hot".

I would remove the electrical tape and replace it with a wire nut.

It is fine to leave it like it is.
