I have 12/3 in a triple gang box i need two GFCI and need a switch that will operate one outlet what do i do?
Expert:  Steve G. replied 1 year ago.

Ok. Is the switch-controlled outlet to be protected by the GFI?

Also, why do you have 12/3 on a receptacle circuit? Was it a 220V circuit at one point? What kind of breaker is protecting it - single pole? Double pole?
