Outlet boxes

I am adding 120 power and want to run a few 120 outlets through the cabin. What kind of outlet box is required? I canít find a free reference that defines it.

Thank you

When I read your post I thought that shouldn't be hard but maybe I'm wrong?

Re: Outlet boxes

Depends how you want to mount it. Flush in a wall. Surface mounted etc. Many boxes available from the hardware store. I would only use plastic ones not metal. The metal will probably rust on a boat.

Re: Outlet boxes

I don't know that there is a requirement for any specific type of box. I would think if it is UL listed it would meet any code requirements. Just install it in the way the manufacturer intended.

I also would recommend plastic boxes. Cheers!

Re: Outlet boxes

My original boxes are metal and were grounded and offer a lower profile. Iíve added a few outlets and usb outlets and used the blue plastic ones from Home Depot. Both work fine.
