Multiple circuits
 
I am building a power source for a hayride and I need four outlets on four switches all running from one power source. How do I connect them all without interfering with each other?

If all switches are in the same box, bring power into the box, then make 4 pigtail going to each switch, then bring a whip out to each plug as put each hot wire from the plug on the switch which you wish to use to control that olug

Is you power coming into the switch location?

Better be a short hayride or you will need a long extension cord.

Or if you have the power coming into one of the receptacle locations, do the following.

NOTE..I did not show ground wires in any of the diagrams for ease of drawing

This scenario is a pretty easy figure out with just a very basic understanding of electrical...like electric 101 basic. So I ask that you be careful since I assume others will be involved in this hayride.
