Tapping power and wiring new single pole dimmer
-1 single pole wall switch with a single 12-2 romex wire going to it (B/W/G). No other wires in the wall box.
-The switch controls a single outlet which I leave "always on" (I taped the switch in the "ON" position).
-Replace wall switch with a new dimmer switch going to some new recessed lights I'll be installing.
-Hardwire the outlet as "always on" so that a switch no longer controls it
1. How do I get from "BEFORE" to "AFTER"?
Is this along the right idea?
->Incoming B/W/G. Tie BW together to make outlet "always on", right?
->How can I power my new dimmer switch if I want the outlet "always on" though? Do I just run a short black wire from the "B/W" that I just tied together? If yes, then what do I do with the "W" coming from my recessed light....?
Basically, I need a power supply to tap from, can't that be the wire that is currently connected to my wall switch?
