Boom outside outlet bad connection. I tore into it and was sticking my meter probes in the outlet and tripped the gfci. I kept messing with it and had power to all 3 outlets. So clearly I wasnt satisfied with the squeeze outlet and took it out.

Will a residential outlet work with the weather cover in tact? I may pigtail a couple of the wires together as not to crowd the outlet. Will also run a new wire to the front outlet since it's really tight no slack.

Wit the new outlet I will need to put in a new outlet box a shallow one with the ears on it to fasten it. Will need to shave some additional fiberglass off to fit the new box.

How's my plan sound?

The power feed goes to the outside outlet fromalls the gfci where the outside outlet acts as a junction for the outside, front and bathroom outlet.

I don't like the looks of that setup at all .... an electrical inspector once told me tie lines together with a section added for plug ... that way if a plug goes bad it doesn't kill everything downline from it ... can you get behind it from inside to mount a junction box and tie into the romex for that plug?

Best bet is to find an electric store in your area, not the big box store, but one which specializes in electrical and see if they can match the outlet with one which has screw connectors. Glad you found it, bet you are too!

Paintin I tore all that out and I am planning pigtailing a couple wires together and into the new outlet. That picture was existing out of the factory.

Bam! You're an electrician! I have replaced many of those push on connector type outlets. Make all the connections tight and protected. It is tight in some of those shallow boxes.
