Hi: Thank you for coming to Just Answer with your question. Sorry for the delay in getting to your question. I was out all day and it appears some of our other techs were as well. This is a busy time of year. My name is XXXXX XXXXX perhaps I can assist you with this issue if you still need some help.

I am thinking this is for some outside outlets and you may have gotten water in them. Check those and see if they look wet. Most panels are labeled inside, but maybe this one wasn't or the tag came off. Let me know if you need more help with this. R.J.
