I have installed (5) recessed lights to my ceiling. I just wanted to double check two questions.
- Is my wiring sequence correct?
Switch to light #1 (3 blacks, 3 whites, 3 grounds in #1),
light #1 to light #2 (3 blacks, 3 whites, 3 grounds in #2),
.... and so on until,
light #4 to light #5 (2 blacks, 2 whites, 2 grounds in light #5). The wires terminate at light #5.
- I used the push connectors provided by the housing. If I cut the 12G wires' harness too long (about an inch) that when I inserted them into the push connector, some wire is still exposed at the base of the connector, can I just wrap electrical tape around the base of the connector with the wires? I know you can do this for a wire nut, but I haven't seen people do it with push connectors so I'm just making sure it's completely okay.
I know I can just remove the wire, cut it and reinsert but im afraid of loosening the push connector's grip by doing that.
Apologies for the noob questions. :)
