I got that point right before I hit submit, but I thought if someone else is in a similar situation it would be good to touch on the (electrical)basics, nonetheless.
Thanks anyway for calling me on it!

: : Be VERY CAREFUL if you attempt to work in your Service Panel, the current can and will kill if abused!
