Let me explain why I asked. I was thinking of running 14/3 with a double pole 15 (30 total) amp breaker. I orginally thought that if a 14/2 gauge wire is fine with 15 amps why couldn't I run 30 amps...

Is 14/3 wiring considered ok to run at 20 amps? Or should one use 12/3 for such circuits for bathroom use?

I will give this a shot. I think the best way is to figure out if the red wire is the relay so I'll get someone to help me test it. I have no idea why this isn't wired in a standard way (I've scoured...
