Here's a thread with some wiring diagrams for some different Love controller models in case you need it:

Can you guys check my homework? I think I got it but if I burn down my house, my wife will leave me for sure.



If my drawing is correct (please don't laugh and my mad skills), the only question I have is about the Hot wire coming from the "male end of the extension cord" and going to posts #7 and #9. Do you just splice in another length or 14g wire along that run?

TIA,

John

Mine has the hot going into #7 and then I used a short jumper wire from #7 to #9.

Thanks TH.

Either way is fine though, right?

If its like your drawing then it should be fine (of course I will deny responsibility if it blows up ). How are you going to splice it? or are you using a terminal block?

I was just going to use wire nuts and tape the snot out of it. If a terminal block is the better option, I'll go that route.

Probably doesn't matter either way but then again I'm not an electrician. The jumper method is pretty neat and clean though
