Many similar questions to "capping the red wire," but this seems different (and involves bypassing the old switch entirely). I'm replacing an old ceiling fan (discrete motor & light switches) with "remote-system" fan (Ground, Neutral, Load wires only) Ceiling-Fan Switch Box. The Ground and Neutral wires are untouched (still connected) in the switch box (all "Romex"). I connected the Source Load directly to the Hot (blk) wire going to the ceiling box. I capped/wrapped the Red leaving the switch box. I capped/wrapped the Red exiting at the ceiling box.
When I turn on the breaker and check the wires, Black is Hot and Red is Hot. Is that scenario OK to leave if capped-off well? The Red would be Hot if still attached to the switch (as I tested before disconnecting).
Adjacent to this box, is another switch box with old CresFlex wires (I think). Both boxes are powerless when the breaker is off. However, they do not interfere with each other's functions when active. Second Box: Doorway-to-wall-outlet by head of bed and probably for reading light... I bypassed the switch on this by connecting the Pigtail with the Red wire (works fine).
Thanks for any assistance.
