its florida. Anywhere the air touches is a wet condition with the 8000% humidity they have


as evidenced by the rust on the current one....


Glad @fly's not me. after all that wire fuckery I would have rewired that whole circuit to the panel, replaced all that raceway with conduit, replaced the rusty ass box, probably replaced the ceiling fan, and then rewired the rest of the house.

Or...... i would have just put in a two gang box and saved myself a lotta trouble.... since he''s gonna have to replace the box anyway

Ceiling fans are next on the list. They're what started this whole thing. I did the outlet first because it was going to be quick and easy. :lol:

you're gonna replace the box you refused to replace for months every time we discussed this and I told you to just put a two gang box in and separate switches.

I've no idea what you're talking about. Why would I put in a two gang, when I only need one?

I guess. I mean, this switch has been out for well over a year, maybe two. I wasn't TOO concerned. The only reason I decided to do it now is that we're replacing these fans with some nice 64" ones.
