i did not take a pic of the wiring before hand and should have =0( but yes, the there was a white wire into both. i think two black wires went into the old standard socket and then there was also a "jumper" wire in between the socket and the switch?
yes one of the white wires was, I just don't remember which one
my dad has a meter i can borrow, but not right this second, It'd be an hour or so. so if you can tell me the wiring configuration I will test the wires and do the connections when he gets here. I also have extra wire I can clip and use as "jumpers" if I need to
i am 99% sure i know which wires are hot because I got the gcfi wired properly, so the wires I used for that are the hot ones!
just try it =0)
gcgi still works. no switch, no trip
splice wires together, meaning: put both white on one screw, and both black on one screw of the switch?
so i took the switch out of the configuration and yes the light comes on
yes the light works with just the wires
