    Well today for example I failed at wireing a secondary zone. It consisted of a peanut relay off off pump relay, taco zv, stat, and fan center for fan coil in garage. So I'm trying to find good detailed info on things to that nature. This setup was originally slaving off another secondary and I was just going to use a transfer and relay off end switch not realizing that I could just use existing fan center. So if I was doing a new install I still wouldn't have done it correctly.
