My skimmer appears to have shorted resulting in the loss of outlets 1, 2 and 3. The equipment on ports 1 and 3 is okay, but the outlets are dead, along with outlet 2 where the skimmer was plugged in. The other outlets were operating fine but I took the box off the wall for inspection. What I assume to be a reset button/fuse on the bottom didn't do anything.

A few questions:

1. Am I correct to assume these traces are blown out due to the skimmer failure?
2. Is the current relay expansion a direct replacement for this outlet box? (http://www.reefangel.com/QuickViewUnive ... nsion.html)

No. Just get the relay box replacement.

Found them. Thanks.

Is there any way to beef up the protection on these in case something shorts again in the future?
