I'm installing a vent/heater/night light/light combination. In its
junction box, it has four hots and four neutral wires. Is it OK to
splice the neutrals together at the fixture's own junction box? (If
yes, then how come they give you four?)
Exactly. if the light is on a different circuit from the fan/heater,
for example, you'd want the light functions connected to the neutral
of the lighting circuit and the fan/heater conneted likewise.
They give you four so that you can separate them if the power to the
loads is not all from the same circuit. The grounded current carrying
conductors of different circuits must not be connected to each other at
any point except in the enclosure of the Circuit Overcurrent Protective
"This alternating current stuff is just a fad. It is much too dangerous
