Does the code require an "in-use cover" on an outside receptacle, that is on a porch area, and has a roof over it?? Thanks Steve..

would that only be considered a "damp location"?

jeff, yes I think that would only be considered a damp location. Do you know the code reference for the in use requirements?
Thanks Steve...

Am I the only one that sees this expanded requirement for "in use" covers as a poor requirement? I have felt that within a few monthes many of these "in use" covers will become "no covers" due to the flimsey construction and I know of at least one case where my prediction has come true.
