Question being is not necessarily for you, but why is the 4th one not connected?

I guess in general, if the 4th wire isnt hooked up now, everything is working including 110v items, whats the catch?

Just because it works, doesn't make it correct.... i'm guessing they re-bonded the grounding conductor at the remote structure.
