I'm in the middle of a range-hood job and cannot finish by bedtime (looks like I'll need to customize the screws for the cabinet). I have a single hot, neutral, and ground wire exposed from the dry-wall - unattached to the range hood - and I won't be able to add the hood until tomorrow. How do I leave the hot, neutral, and ground wires before turning the power back on from the breaker? Do I simply wire-cap (little red screw on cap) each one separately - black by itself, white by itself, ground by itself? Or do I twist the black and white together before capping?
I need to turn the power to the breaker back on for lighting in the AM, but I don't want to burn the house down... Thanks for any help!
