CFGI in the bathroom

Bought a mobile home. Want to replace a regular plug in the bathroom with a CFGI as it's dangerous as it is now. Not sure how he has it working but this is how I see the configuration.

Power from box into the bathroom switch - then switch to the lights above the sink - then to the plug (non-CFGI) - then to a switch which controls the exhaust fan in the bathroom.

I'm not kidding when I say the configuration was working without a hitch. The switch for the fan worked as long as the lights in the bathroom were turned on as well as the plug was working as long as the lights in the bathroom were turned on. When I removed the old plug to install the CFGI I wasn't paying attention to the wiring and now I'm stuck. I do not know how to wire the power from the lights to the CFGI to the switch for the fan. Can anyone help with a simple diagram on how to wire them together. This would be hugely appreciated.

Thanks - Hutchcove

It would help greatly to know the number and colors of the wires you are dealing with.

The only wiring that you needed to concern yourself with was on the receptacle. If these are the only wires just place the black wire on the brass LINE and the white to the silver LINE terminals. Connect the bare or green to the green screw.
