Help replacing switch
« on: June 30, 2018, 07:51:44 AM »
I’m replacing a single switch with a dimmable switch.  I’ve turned of the power.  The current box has 2 black weed, one of which does not appear to be attached to anything.  I’ve attached a picture. 

I’m assuming the wires are

Black (in switch) carries power.
Red (in switch) returns power.
Plain brass (in switch) ground
Loose black?

Any help appreciated.
