The clock module for power pack is not sold separately.
Set timer to auto using override knob so lights are on, then plug power pack into cheap timer.
Check outlet with circuit analyzer.
Try connecting power pack to another outlet.

Unplug transformer, change bulbs with low voltage bulbs from local hardware or home center. There are two screws on back of each bulb.

Reason for unplugging transformer: because product manual lists that as best way to change bulbs. The low voltage transformer output is 12Volts and does not carry enough power to cause you harm if you touch bare wire.

1) Yes. With 6 amps.
It is not purely code, but generally not dangerous.
Most household outlets and switches sold at home center are actually rated 15 amp, and should be on a 15 amp breaker. just don't overload.

2) However if you are running close-to or higher amps than 15 amps, such as space heater (volts x amps = watts), then I would suggest installing 20 amp arc-fault breaker, and protect whole circuit.

3) Add comment and say what you do.
