I'm remodelling my garage. The outdoor electric circut will be GFI
If the first outlet downstream of the cct breaker panel has a GFI
outlet, what will happed to the outlets downstream from the GFI outlet
the GFI outlet trips, will the downstream outlets be disabled?
a fault occurs in a normal outlet downstream of the GFI outlet, will
the GFI outlet trip and disable the fault?
This information is detailed out in the instructions that come with
the GFCI receptacle. Remember to follow the instructions in wiring
Now simple answers, if wired correctly, the GFCI receptacle, and all
outlets wired away from it, on the load side, should be all protected.
This means if there is a trip, the GFCI and all GFCI supplied
receptacles will deenergize. So you are very correct in your
assumptons if all works correctly.
