Ok, here is what I have going on. I am putting electrical outlets back into my shop after the drywall and insulation was installed. I found out there were two 20 amp breakers for my shop.
What could I have possibly done wrong? I put my multi-meter to everything and I’m pulling 124v from black to ground, red to ground, and also on the wall outlet 124v from black to white. (My house has always read 124v ‘ish since we moved in)
I disconnected the opener and lights from the (red, white, green) circuit and they both still read ‘hot’ when the one circuit is turned off. I measured this from the first splice in my shop where is enters the structure from the house feed. Argh! I keep the breakers to the shop turned off unless I’m in there working, for fear of burning it down. I only started wiring the lights yesterday.
