Electrical Fixture Family, Multiple electrical connectors, one homerun?

I am trying to create a Revit Family with multiple circuits. I've gone as far as making the family with multiple Electrical connectors, and assigning a seperate load parameter for each connector. When i load it into my model, it works well as far as assigning a load to each connector and having each connectors circuit show on my panel schedule. My only problem is the circuit homerun wire tag. It will not pick up on all the circuits. Is there a way to modify my family so that each circuit assigned to my device shows up on one homerun wire tag...?

 

(i am working on a theatrical electrical plan/model. the AV consultant is showing a box with mutliple devices within it on dedicated power. my goal is to only show the actual box, with multiple connectors, and not each device within it. these boxes are show everywhere, as you can.) :cathappy: :catmad: :catlol: :catsurprised: 

The information within the secondary Electrical Connector(s) is unfortunately not available to be Tagged. The current work-around is to create a tiny piece of Wire from a secondary Electrical Connector and then use a Wire Tag (designed to look like your normal tag) to report the electrical info instead.
