    One page three 3-way diagrams

    Here's three 3-way drawings - one is feed in one box, load out end box. Line & load in same box. Line & load in center box, a three way at one end of a room and another three way at other side of a room.

    One thing about the 3-way switches. I've found that the terminal designations move and the screws aren't always color coded. I've had to ohm out a few to connect them properly. No, I haven't the foggiest reason for electrical component manufacturers to do this. Your drawings are correct, one will just have to make sure which terminal is which.

    Thanks
