GFCI no more then 4 wires
i was reading the instructions for a gfci and noticed something i never saw before, it says that you cant put the gfci in a box with more then 4 wires excluding ground. but ive seen many many homes new and old that have a gfci with 2 to 4 switches in 1 box with the gfci. so if there is 4 switches in a box there is at least 8 wires not counting the gfci.
so my question is, is the 4 wire rule NOT counting the gfci wires? so i can wire a light switch and gfci in 1 box?
is there another way around this, a bigger box perhaps?
what is the deal with this?
