Installing 3 outlets and 2 switches

Hello Everyone,

I am installing 3 outlets otdoors and would like to know. How can I wire them, so 2 outlets could be control by individual switches and 1 outlet and be constant hot.

Thank you

Please excuse me for being blunt but this is such an elementary question it tells me that you are not ready to attempt this project. Electricity is an equal opportunity killer.

Please go to your local library and check out several do-it-yourself books on home wiring and also purchase the book Wiring Simplified and read it cover to cover. Wiring Simplified is available at the mega-mart homecenter and also most hardware stores for less than $10. More often than not it will be located in the electric aisle rather than in the books area.

In addition, it would be hard to give a wiring diagram without knowing the layout of the receptacles and switches.
