I'm looking for information regarding an install of an outdoor plug. I'm familiar with an outdoor box, but have some questions regarding it. I would like to utilize an existing hole in my house to run the wires through, but it's currently 6 inches (or less) from a gutter downspout. Is this too close for comfort? Also, if I'm understanding correctly, I need to run a GFCI outlet. How do these wire into existing plugs- is there a diagram I can look for this information?
Thanks a lot.
