    Is your outside 120v duplex plug GFCI protected?

    Just looking at mine the outside 120v duplex is NOT GFCI, it's a traditional duplex plug, but I need to check if it's downstream (aka slave) of an inside GFCI where it would be protected.

    In my common sense the outside would have to be GFCI protected.....

    My outside one is NOT the GFCI type also but is protected being downstream from the GFCI one located in the Kitchen which is the other side of the outside wall...

    I also have a GFCI anywhere you can come in contact with water I guess... The bathroom and a bedroom hallway wash-up sink both have GFCI units... Three GFCI units installed my trailer...

    To bring closure here:
    My outside plug is a GFCI slave to the inside GFCI located by the sink, so everything is fine.
    Sink GFCI is master to all other 120v plugs inside and outside
