    Good question. I'm not smart enough to answer that one, other than to say I never direct bury anything in this area. Way too many rocks in the ground.

    What I infer from the instructions and proved with my field tests is that the AF breaker does not detect a hard N-G fault because the GFPE is now absent. That is why it says...
