What is your location, few states have adopted the 2011 yet. MA and CO I believe have. Or you are studying for a future test?

There are several changes in the 2011 that are extremely annoying.

Pool bonding.
Neutrals with switch loops.
Generator capacity requirements
Common grounding at services
Weather resistant
Tamper resistant?????
Etc.

And how about an 8 gang switch box with each switch on a separate circuit (location requires neutral in box)?

One 14 gauge neutral wire OK for all?

Or???





Then you have a closet door jamb switch...
