I just took down my light fixture in my bathroom. We have two fixtures for our dual vanity that run off of the same wall switch. When I pulled down the old fixture I noticed that there were two black wires capped with the single black fixture cable. Then there were two whites capped with the single white fixture cable. This made sense because the second cable runs the second fixture. My concern is that the 2 copper exposed wires were previously wired together with the white wires, not capped separately. Is this correct or should I separate the bundle of wires and cap white with white and exposed with exposed?
The breaker that this is connected to has tripped a few times over the years and I am wondering if this may be the reason?
