I am wiring a GFI with switch and confused how it all goes together. The receptacle has a line, load and two small wire leads on the back. I have wired the line in correctly and started to have a problem with what to do with the rest. I understand the difference between line and load. To complicate matters, the bathroom has old tube and knob wiring. I found the hot side by using a tester grounded to the water pipes. I then wired the black side of old wiring in the black side of the load area. I then wired one of the black leads to the neutral side of load area, and the other lead to the neutral old wiring. This combination works. Does anyone know if this is correct or should I invest heavily into fire insurance.
