Added new outside duplex receptacle

I like to sit outside in my "old folks" rocking chair and use my laptop which requires using my antique Palm Plus phone's free hot spot. Using the hot spot, the battery will only last about an hr so it has to be plugged in also. The factory outside outlet is about 4 feet from where we sit which requires stringing cords, etc. I decided to put another outlet between where we sit our "old folks" rocking chairs. Added it right above the tires, below the window. Should allow putting the computer power source and phone on the table between our chairs. Will add pictures tomorrow when I find the camera.

Finally after an hours search, found the camera tucked down by the side of DW's seat in the truck. She had no idea where it was. Duh! I sure didn't put it there.

Would have put them in an album in my profile, but something is amiss with the Add album mode as it will let you add the title and description, but no pics. Help desk was contacted 4 or 5 times with no resolution.

Very nice looking job, inside & outside. Did you tie it into the GFIC circuit going to the bathroom?

No, the one I added on a separate breaker for the electric heater we use which is GFIC protected.
