Re: more lighting questions

Can't imagine why. I wouldn't switch the ground off the bulb
itself...do that and you're asking for trouble...someone
else commented that it will eat bulbs too.
I referred to switching the ground off the *relay*. Why
would you *not* want to do that? Bob? Anyone?
I've wired lamps this way for 20 years and haven't had to
put one out yet. Uh, strike that, there *was* a little
problem with the lights on my wife's Camry, but it wasn't my
fault. Honest. I meant to put the fuse inline. I really did.
Pretty blue smoke and a weird smell! And that was from
my wife! <g>
So why shouldn't you switch ground?
