GFCI Receptacles

Will each receptacle be on a separate circuit and separate breaker?

  • Return the second GFCI recptacle and get a non GFCI receptacle.
  • Connect power in to the LINE side of the GFCI receptacle.
  • Connect the LOAD side of the GFCI receptacle to the non GFCI receptacle.
  • Black to brass, white to silver, bare to green.

Be sure to use outdoor rated receptacles and an in use bubble cover.
