Can you have a GFCI in the middle of the run without everything past the GFCI being protected by the GFCI? I know power in goes to LINE. Is out from LOAD side still GFCI protected?

Q: Can you have a GFCI in the middle of the run without everything past the GFCI being protected by the GFCI?

A: Yes, if this is what you want. Just don't use the load side of the GFCI. Connect the incoming and outgoing wires to each other and to pigtails, and connect the pigtails to the line side of the GFCI.

Q: I know power in goes to LINE. Is out from LOAD side still GFCI protected?

A: Yes.

Based on these two somewhat contradictory questions, I can't quite tell where you're coming from. If you have any doubts about GFCI protection, invest $8 in a outlet tester. These gizmos can verify GFCI protection on any receptacle.

Thumbs up

Thanks I understand. I was trying to connect a couple of outlets to the GFCI outlet, while keeping lights, bath exhausts and misc outlets down the line off the GFCI.
