Bare grounding pigtails?
I'm daisy chaining quad outlets in metal boxes. Do the lengths from the wirenut to each outlet and ground screw need to be stripped bare or can I keep the insulation on them? Is this always the case, or are there sometimes where bare/insulated is required?
And related, there will be 5 wires into the grounding wirenut,is there any way around this, I don't like the idea of having so many wires on one wirenut. I do have the proper size for it. Is there any way to help this stay secure other than just wrapping with electrical tape?
