I'm finishing my basement and have completed half of the wiring with an experienced electrician, but now he's out of town for a while and I need to know if I made a mistake on the second half (he will be checking my work before we connect to the box, I am just trying to save myself some time by asking)
I wired a string of 5 outlets but only once I got to the end did I realize I had been working backwards from the end of the line to the junction box. All of the incoming wires from the box will now be on the bottom grip holes and outgoing will be from the top holes. Does it matter? He had made a point of saying the incoming wires go on top and outgoing go on bottom. The 2 runs of recepticles are on completely separate breakers so they have no contact with each other.
Thanks! And I know it's probably a stupid question!
