Three way switch fed from light with two hots?
I made the mistake of not keeping track of which was the common line when I replaced two three way switches. So I followed the basic instructions of; remove both switches, separate the wires and turn the breaker back on and see which is the hot wire. Ran into a small problem as I have a hot wire in each box. How does that work?
I have two switches each with three wires; a white, black and red wire. Black is hot in both locations. Since there is no feed source I am assuming (yes I know that's dangerous) that the power from the panel goes to the light first.
How do I go about reattaching the lines? I have tried multiple ways still cant get it.
Thanks for any help available.
