Yeah, that makes sense. That should fix my "open neutral" problem. Not that it's been a "problem" but...

Here's the modified wiring diagram that should be better than the previous one.



If you use this wiring diagram, you would have to wire the outlet differently. The bar on the gold side of the contacts would have to be broken and the bar on the white side should stay intact. The two black wires should go to the two gold connections and one white wire should be connected to one of the white side connections and should then be tied back to the white wire that comes in from the plug.

Or perhaps BOTH bars would need to be broken and TWO separate white wires should go back to the white plug wire. Would that even make a difference? I don't know.

Obviously, I am not a professional electrician so take my instructions at your own risk.

Cool, thanks for the input...don't worry I'm taking your thoughts as academic advice only. But if it works I owe you a beer ...now I'm confused about the wiring but I'll take another look at it. #1) #2) #3) are done. I got a 12-gauge 3-prong cord, check.

Earlier I cut the strips on the silver side, and now I'll wait to see if I should cut the gold side also. Once someone confirms that I'll wire out the rest of the revised diagram and give it a shot.

Thanks for you advice

I might pick up a new outlet and test out my revised wiring diagram this week. If I do, I'll post some new pics and tell you how it turned out.

Hey LandoLincoln, any chance you got the time to try this new setup? I may just wire my attempt up today and see what happens...which could be interesting in either case...

Thanks!

It should also be noted that at least on the product page it says Dual 20 amp relays not 30 amp relays.

I pulled that graphic from the manufacturer's website. So anyway, I think they're rated 20 amp, not 30.

Land o Lincoln, you might want to take down your first drawing where you're switching the white wire. It's a pretty big safety hazard to switch the neutral!

Also, in the second drawing, you don't need the wire if you leave the tab on the white side of the receptacle. If you've broken the tab you can just put a wire between the screws and be fine.
