Thank you all for the useful info on this site. I am currently running the wires through our 90 Bluebird and just wanted to make sure that I am running the cables cables correctly. I am coming from the source to a light switch that is then branching out to a light of course, but also continuing from the switch to another recepticle as well. At the switch I have all the white wires tied together from all three cables (not connected to anything), all the black wires brought together to the top right of the switch (pigtailed). This is where I get confused, In my basement and online I see a red cable going to the bottom right of the switch, but I dont have the extra red wire running in my cable. If I don't have the red wire what do I connect to the bottom right of the switch to make this work?
I DO NOT want the switch to turn the recepticle on and off. Thank you for your help.
