Yeah, and that's why so many people with posts on these forums change it out,- because it works so well.
Using an in-line toggle switch on the blue wire simply disrupts the power by turning off the source- (no positive and negative contact between the the two sources made at all)- you have a very strange definition of what an
"electrical short" is.
It is not the same as using the a wire which contains a small amount of current, and then pushing a button which transfers that current into the grounded frame to "short" out the power that was being generated. - which conducts heat which can eventually in time- not always- lead to failure.
But whatever, you do what you want and I'll do it the way that will never fail.
Keep on Kruisin,
