I have a little job I'm working on kind of a bar /pool house thing.
My question is ,if I put three resi ceiling fans down stream of a gfci rec circuit do you think I will end up with nuisance tripping of the gfci rec?
Thanks for your input!

Three? I thought the max was two (but it wouldn't be the first time I was misinformed).

I would run the extra 60' of wire. Taking down ceiling fans to troubleshoot would be a complete PITA.

I see no problem with it. Worse case scenario you go back and install 2 extra gfci receptacles if you start getting nuisance tripping.

Is that a rule 99, never been called on anything like that before.
I,ll put 3 or 4 on the outside of a house off one gfci rec.
