I have a 40 year old house. There is a receptacle in the garage that has two sets of wires coming into the box. One set is black, white and neutral. The other set is black, white, red and neutral. If this receptacle is switched, I don’t know from where. I wanted to replace the receptacle but mixed up the wiring. I don’t need it to be switched. How do I rewire the receptacle with both sets of wires?
I also wanted to use this receptacle to add two additional receptacles outside the garage. When I rewired the receptacle, the circuit breaker trips right away. I found that another circuit breaker seems to be connected with it. I am now having to switch circuit breaker 1 off and circuit breaker 2 on. If I want to use the receptacle I’m working on, I have to reverse the on/off between circuit breakers 1 and 2.
Could you please tell me how I should wire the original outlet and add the two outside outlet wiring
