Re: GFIC outlet in work shed
All 15 amp GCFIs I have seen have a 20 amp pass through. The problem is that GCFIs do not work well with capacitive loads. The capacitor by it's nature time delays the power out from the power in, because of this the GCFI sees a difference in current flow between the hot and the common and thus the GCFI trips. Does he need to have a ground wire added, absolutely.
