(Cost, convenience, labor, got to finish today but the store is closed...)
I'm not adding anything, just trying to eliminate stuff like this from PO's (see picture). Definitely not doing home runs for each light (does anyone do that?).
Just diagnosed a problem and fixed it with a patch.
Short in lighting circuit affects radio?
I'm tired of patching and want to come up with a plan to do it right. Thats how I ended up at this thread.
