The neutrals are all on the same circuit. I have one from each of the flood lights, one from the fan/light, and one going back into the ceiling. Since there's only one wire in (with two separately swiched hot leads), there is only nuetral out on the same wire.
I am having an issue with finding room for all of these connections. To make matters worse, the fan runs off a remote switch, the reciever of which is also supposed to fit in the fan box. (This would actually work quite well if there was nothing else in the box.)
I considered an extension to the box, but there would a couple of issues.
1) The fan box that's installed is not one on which the fan mount can bolt. I expected to just use a couple of machine screws to secure the fan mount to the box. Instead, the box came with a couple of huge wood screws which go through the fan mount, through the slots in the fan box and straight into a 2-by-something spread between two ceiling joists above. This means that, in order to use an extension, I'd have to mount a new fan box wich would probably require me to open up the ceiling, something I've been trying really hard to avoid.
2) By using an extension, I'm lowering the mount height of the fan. This leaves a gap between the ceiling and the base plate (the decorative metal piece that lies flush with the ceiling to hide the actual fan mount) of the fan, also not ideal.
I did have one idea of eliminating the box all together. This can be done in this case since the fan actually hangs from the 2-by-something mentioed above and no weight is actually being placed on the box. I know this is a bit of a stretch, and I'm pretty sure it would be in violation of some code. But removing the box would give me all of the room in the roof of my back porch and not restrict me to the box.
Another idea was to mount an extension below the fan mount (box, mount, extention). I could drill a hole in a plastic box cover to accomodate the downrod of the fan and just forgo the existing pretty base plate. This would give me room around and just below the fan mount for all of my wires without actually lowering the mounted height of the fan.
But both of these seem kinds sloppy. Feedback on each would be appreciated.
