MAJA
ON YOUR DIMMER BEFORE U DISCONNECT WIRES, START WITH ONE DIMMER FIRST. THE COMMON ( FEED ) GOES IN TO COMMON
OF THE FIRST OF TWO SWITCHES ON THE TWO GANG UNIT, AND
THE SWITCH WIRE ON DIMMER PROBALY MARKED LOAD GOES INTO
L2, OR 1 WAY DEPENDING HOW IT IS MARKED ON TWO GANG SWITCH.
THE OTHER DIMMER, WOULD BE NOW CONNECTED ONTO THE SECOND SWITCH OF THE TWO GANG UNIT. AGAIN COMMON OF DIMMER INTO
COMMON OF SWITCH , AND SWITCH WIRE INTO L2 OR ONE WAY.
