The main box that the arms of the Y branch off has a GCFI...there are two more dual outlets wired one after the other on the same circuit and they are both GCFI's as well. So three. I don't know why. They can be daisy chained as long as the one at the beginning of the circuit has a GCFI right?
If I remove the redundant GCFI's...leaving just the one at the base of the branch...will that solve the power issues we are having?
I really wish I had labeled everything before we started this.
I have the main GCFI wired with load wires to the proper contacts...line wires to the proper contacts and the 3 black wires marretted together. The there is one white wire left over...not sure where it goes! I was thinking it should be contected with the other white line wire?
I just want to clarify.
Both the hot wires and the feed wires should be connected to the receptacles using the line connection only?
And this is for the last two GFCI outlets on the circuit...not the main GFCI.
This would include the black wires that feed to the lights? Or do they need to stay separate?
I haven't done this type of wiring before...so I just to make sure I am reading you right!
Ahh...OK I see what you mean now!
Sorry for the confusion!
It's about to rain...so I guess I had better get at it!
