Is this wiring acceptable?

Postby themoffster » Thu Dec 10, 2020 7:42 pm

I had issues embedding the image, so it is here:

The switched fuse is 13A.

I thought this would work as you are not able to take two spurs off of one socket, so can I spur a switched fuse then have that feed two separate sockets?

If it matters neither will have anything that’s high load (radio, lamps, etc for inside double and speakers for the external for the sunny days).

If this isn’t good could you suggest an alternative way to power the two new sockets from the existing double?

You can have as many sockets as you like AFTER the fused connection unit.
