What is the operative word here... "in" or "dwelling"? In other words, is it OK to install this above a basement door below a porch in (on?) a dwelling?

Again, this 100% Compliance thing is really complicated... but I'm trying my best...

I've never understood why that fixture can't be used in dwellings. Does anyone know?

Well, see I'm thinking about replacing my truck, and I'd like to get a pair of magnetic signs (my current truck has too much bondo...), and I was thinking of a slogan...

Yeah those are cool. I always wanted to put a red bulb with a flasher button in one of those.

lol!, quite the reverse, your attention to detail is commendable Vig....perhaps the 'white book' or UL link would provide rationale?

BTW...
i once saw a 'lectrical rig that said....


We'll Check Your Shorts

i can't believe S/He actuall put that on a truck......

I worked for a company that had "Voltswagon" on the back of the trucks and "we get your juices flowing" on the shirts. Another local guy had "Let us remove your shorts" in his newspaper ad. Also is the fixture mounted in the dwelling. If it was on a dwelling i would fail to see a problemn.
