You would have to switch off of the neutral. This is against code and would make the lights a constant hot. But here ya go.
to do it correctly you would feed the switch with the hot and then feed the lights from the switch.
but if you want to feed the lights first (you asked) you have to break the circuit with the neutral...this will cause arcing and will wear on anything you use to switch faster.
Dont worry I am here to help.
I think this would be best handled over the phone, would you accept a small charge 5$ to continue this via phone?
No this is against code. You will need 10 gauge if you don't want to risk fire.
this is the way the lights should go, hope it helps :)
Kind of like the last drawing i sent..
whoa, how did that happen (pic upside down)
i would double check connections at the second light, sounds like a fixture wire is loose.
