The breaker cannot be reset until everything has dried up well enough (several hours to several days if more thunder storms come through).
We have both bathrooms, two outdoor outlets and garage outlets and door opener on the circuit. It gets annoying to have no bathroom lights for several days.
Unfortunately, on visual inspection, the obvious culprits, the external outlets (both located under eaves, with nothing plugged into them, and with protective metal covers) seem dry as dry. Everything else seems fine as well. So either the problem is very subtle (which seems odd since the it is only caused by ver unsubtle conditions), or maybe there is some other outlet on the circuit that I am not aware of the existence of.
Is there any way to track down the source of the fault or at least rule out particular locations without a lot of hassle? If there's no easy way, what is the best way to go about finding the source of the problem?
Thanks very much.
