Started work on mustang this morning. Turn on air compressor and it trips breaker. Reset breaker and lights come on but outlets are dead. Trace problem to popped GFC outlet. Only problem is gun safe is bolted to floor in front of outlet. Was not aware at the time I installed safe that they not only wired garage to one lousy 15 amp breaker (lights, garage door opener, and wall outlets), but the idiots also wired all outlets through the one GFC outlet. Spent better part of an hour rigging a poking device to reset breaker and fishing around blindly behind safe to reset breaker. After resetting breaker, I made a trip to Lowes. Bought a couple 20 amp breakers, some outlets, boxes and wire. I will run outlets tomorrow so I will not have problem in future. May run a 220 line as well just to have should need arise. I do want a welder in near future.
