Can anyone help me find the discussion about the "trick" 3-way hook-up that had to do with operating a garage light and house light from both locations and having power available at the garage at all times. It was done with only 3 wires between the garage and house by connecting the hot to one of the traveler terminals instead of the common.
Thanks.

Hi Redsy, I didn't see one on this site but I did see one on Mike Holts: http://www.mikeholt.com/forum/Forum1/HTML/002317.html
I Think they refered to it as a Tennesse 3-way. I hope this helps. Bill

Redsy, after reading your post again, I dont think this is the one you are looking for. But, maybe it will help.

Thanks, guys.
Rick's thread was the one I was looking for.
I tried 3 times today to find it at each section with no luck. I thought it was 3 wires not 4 , but thats the one I want.
Thanks.

This was used years ago in home between house and garage.

Is no longer legal.

Very nice. Unless I'm mistaken, this was also known as the Carter 3-way and the California 3-way.

Thanks.
