    Unless the circuits all go down under the house or up into an attic. Then they can move the
    junction box down or up. But the feeders are the issue. If they are short and have to be
    extended the job go...

    How many breakers? What size breakers? What voltage breakers? Which way do your feeders come

    receptacles with a feed-thru of 20A. YES, you CAN plug in two 9A loads into a 15A duplex and it

    What 2 items do you plug in that are 9 amps each?But you're right if you use 18 amps on one
