Our road trip through America's heartland continues as host Kevin O'Connor travels to Little Rock, Arkansas to install an outdoor electrical outlet for a homeowner. Then, Kevin and landscaping contractor Roger Cook show a live audience in Wichita, Kansas how to plant flower bulbs properly. Afterward, Kevin heads to Memphis, Tennessee to tour Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley. Then, general contractor Tom Silva helps a Memphis homeowner replace her old, worn-out kitchen cabinet hardware.

Installing an outdoor electrical outlet

Kevin and electrician Keith Diemer helped a homeowner in Little Rock, Arkansas by installing a GFCI-protected electrical outlet above her backyard deck. The electrician ran a new, dedicated circuit for the outlet from the service panel in the garage to the back of the house using non-metallic sheathed cable, which he encased in plastic conduit to protect it from both physical damage and rainwater.
