    We recently had a new storage shed built and the wiring is 12 amp. We will only be using tools, etc., that use 110V...NO 220. We have a GFCI just inside the shed, where the power wiring comes into the shed, and the wiring to the power pole panel goes underground (about 30 ft) through the conduit and inside the power panel and the circuit breaker, which is presently a 20A GE breaker. The problem is that the circuit breaker keep tripping intermittently. I'm wondering if I should/could use a 30A breaker instead, since there is a GFCI before it goes into the shed wiring?
