Replace a fan switch with a timer switch

Hello,

I have a simple fan switch that I'd like to replace with a timer switch (Leviton LTB30-1LZ):
https://www.leviton.com/en/products/ltb30-1lz

Removing the wall plate reveals something that's slightly different from what I can find in various instructions/ threads. I think I understand most of it; connect the line to the line, load to load and ground to ground however I don't quite understand the neutral (marked in yellow). Should I connect the timer switch white neutral wire into the the same wire connector that the four neutral wires (all currently unused) are terminated in? Alternatively should I pull out a single one of these neutral wires and connect it to that and if so does it matter which one?

Thank you very much for any help.

Welcome to the forums.

The neutral from the timer connects to that neutral splice. All the white wires will be in one splice. Be sure to cap off the yellow/red three way wire.
