Gunny, Planning your outlet location requires following a couple simple rules. You need to have one every 12 feet of runnning wall space and one for every 2 ft of usable wall space. You usually find those in between closet doors etc, it does not count the space behind doors. You also consider usable wall space 1ft high as in under windows etc. After that, you can put them anywhere you want them to figure in to the rules. They are meant to be convenience items and placed as such. Hope that helps.

What can you do if your newly installed GFCI keeps tripping unless you detach all the other outlets in the room but all outlets are wired correctly?

Is the GFCI wired correctly. Voltage in goes to LINE. Voltage out goes to LOAD. Ground wires connect together and connected to ground on GFCI. All screws tight. If all this is correct and you have no loose wires on any of the outlets and no wires are shorted out in any of the outlets then more than likely you have a defective GFCI. Replace it with another one. I get bad ones all the time.

On a 120 volt electrical circuit how many outlets can you have?

It all depends on the location and circuit ampacity. Kitchens usually only have 2 or 3. Garages can have anywhere from 1 to 14. Dining room circuits can only have outlets on them that serve the dining room. Clothes washing machines, air conditioners, and other appliances get their own circuits. Throughout the house, such as bedrooms, hallways, living rooms, ets, generally don't go over 14.
