I've done a topic search but did not get an answer to my question. I have been trying to wire an outlet to a 3-way switch and cannot get it to work. I tried jumping wires from switch to outlet and the breaker trips when I try to reset. I'm obviously not wiring correctly. 1 black, 1 white, 1 red. Help?

Are you trying to wire a switched receptacle to 2 3way switches or trying to add an always hot receptacle to a 3way lighting circuit? What wires are in the switch boxes and at the receptacle?
