I have been learning a lot and realized I may have done a bad thing. I think I wired all my garage outlets in "series". The first outlet is a GFCI, wires from panel go in the "line" side and all the other outlets in the garage are regular outlets on the "load" side. I think this is correct for keeping all outlets as required GFCI protected.
What I am wondering is the way I connected the rest were white and black wires were on the appropriate screws on the outlets. I have not pigtails other than the ground. I guess what I am getting at and asking is don=92t most people wire outlets in "parallel" using a pigtail also on the black wire so that if one outlet goes out, the others stay on?
Is it so bad to have them wired in series as I have them?
Also, I am not to the point of wiring outlets for lights in the ceiling yet. Should they be wired in series or parallel?
Thanks for all your help!
