Thank you Russ for your response. But you raise another question as well, in terms of switching. Are you referring to where the neutral ( white ) becomes the hot wire? If so, why should this really matter to the electrical load when the ac voltage swings back and forth anyways ( alternating between positive and negative cycles ). I know there have been instances where I have wired from an outlet to a small power ac-dc power supply, an through experimentation putting the white wire from the ac outlet onto the "hot" position of the power supply and doing the same with black wire from the ac outlet to the "neutral" position of the power supply is still works just as normal. Many thanks.
