I'm good on that lol. I've got a new gfci lying around plus I know what I'm doing. I did have a surge protector burn up one day though now that we're on the subject. I had my window a/c on one outlet, my 55" flat screen, ps3, and 1000w sony sorround sound on the surge protector on another outlet, and my aquarium equipment (filter, dual outlet air pump, 200w heater, circulation pump, and light) on a surge protector on another outlet. All on the same circuit. My wife woke me up and said everything was off. Checked it out, breaker was tripped. Reset the breaker and heard a pop come from the living room. I get out there and hear something sizzleing. Afraid of the worst I went and switched the breaker off and I could smell it by now. The surge protector on the entertainment was fried. Luckily we were home, and nothing got fried. That would of been a very expensive bill
