Re: Yet another GFCI question
1.Code requires a dedicated 20 amp service to the bathroom not a dedicated service to a GFCI.
2.An inspector is always right, even if he's wrong.
Almost all electrical is grand fathered in unless there is a local ordinance saying other wise. If the only requirement is to replace the receptacle with a GFCI you can meet that requirement by replacing it and wiring the light and fan to the power side of the GFCI. This will leave the light and fan unprotected by the GFCI but may well meet local requirements.
