I just got off the phone with the inspector. An in-use weatherproof cover is required for ALL outdoor electrical, but a GFCI is not, because the socket has a very specific purpose. However, I may add GFCI for safety's sake.

Isolation that is required by safety law will prevent that problem.

the one in the breaker should work, but this is what I have worked with and would use as the reset is right there and it has a light on it that tells you what is going on, it makes for quick trouble shooting.

Except when it doesn't, my folks blew out a camera, printer pSU and a monitor by attaching them to opposing polarity lines from a 220 pigtail at a local country fair.

Anything that communicates isolated or not suffers ripple issues and micro currents when run on opposing polarities. very hard to get around that.

on the topic of Ground Fault Circuit Interruption, I talked to an electrician who said that anything that is hard wired like that does not have to be on ground fault, if it is designed to be outside, old garages also do not need ground fault circuit outlets even on the outside, however new garages do, that every outlet has to be on a ground fault branch and this can cause problems as most of them are not designed to run motors as I was also talking to him about my bath room vent fan that is on a leg of a ground fault circuit, the motor sometimes trips the safety, apparently motors do that and if people have electric garage door openers, or fridges in their garage this can cause a problem under the new rules, but I've gotten side tracked, he said that with an existing garage to just go ahead and hook it up and you will be fine and pretty much fallow code but that it would be a nice safety to have a GFCI for the piece of mind if you happen to be standing in a puddle of water.

For the time being, the project is on hold, The other 2/3 of the household responded to the idea with a firm 'no.' I appreciate all the help, though.
