Wiring V8043F To a Taco ZVC404

I am in need of help wiring my 4 Honeywell V8043F 1051 valves to a Taco ZVC404-EXP-4 controller. Would I hook this valve up as a 4 wire valve? If so, It looks like I would need to hookup terminals 1 & 2 on controller to TH (middle) & TR (right) and terminals 3 & 4 on controller to the End Switch? I hope I got this right. The zone valve controller has a Main TT and a Priority TT but the boiler only has one TT on it and I was wondering should I be worried if there is a call for both DHW and heat at the same time what would get the priority, if any. I would like to somehow give DHW priority but don't know how it could be, or even needs to be wired. I have attached the boiler and controller pdf files. Any help or thoughts would be appreciated, thanks.

    Correct.

    And only the "Main End Switch XX" goes to the boiler's "Heat Demand TT". Leave the Priority End Switch XX unwired and turn the Priority dip switch on the Taco controller to the "on" position.

    Also why bother with Th Tr, no need to do that (unless you really want to do that)
