Three Way Switch setup
I'm installing a switched outlet, controlled by two three way switches.
My setup is to be:
Coming into switch box number one: Power feed.
Then 14-3 Romex between Switch box #1 and Switch Box #2,
which contains switch #2 only (no other cables enter/leave).
A 14-2 will leave box #1 to run to switched outlet.
So, I want to connect Black from feed in Box #1 to black conductor of 14-3 running between the two boxes. Red and white will be travellers. In box #1, Red and white from 14-3 get connected to the two (non common, if you will) terminals of switch #1, and the common terminal of switch #1 gets connected to the 14-2 running to the switched outlet.
In all my other 3 way switch wiring, the route has been power to switch #1, then Red/black travellers "hot", with neutral carried by white, and then in switch box #2, a 14-2 running to load with the black attached to common of switch number 2. What is different here is that I'm not running a neutral between the two switches. Is this allowed? I'm running it this way, as there is less cable used.
