There are some people out there who still do this today. Talk to them until you're blue in the face and they're not going to change.
Nooooo ... tell me they all go to a DIY site and get good advice :eek:

I'm curious - you said you had 3 wire romex connecting the two 3-ways. Have you considered the possibility of induced voltage? I know this caught me a couple of times early on in the trade - I would measure about 30 (induced) volts on the not-in-use traveller of a 3-wire in a 3-way configuration (in new housing, properly wired). 55 volts is a higher number than I remember ever seeing, but maybe a possibility, or at least part of the puzzle?
Good point Mugs :thumbsup:
