Looks like the instructions for the single stage, but it's hard to say for sure. If you put a jumper across 5-6 it "locks" the set points so that they can't be changed using the menu.

Could you post a full picture of those instructions? I have the same controller but no instructions. Thanks in advance!

What size project box is recommended? Think I am going to end up doing this since my other experiment does not seem to be working out too well.

Built mine today. Was a little time consuming since I had never done ANYTHING like it before. I did mess up by cutting the ground connection on the outlet.

Also I found it really hard to get everything to fit in the dual gang box.

I used a 4x4x2 PVC junction box, and it's a very tight fit. I think most people went a little bigger.

I decided that the headache of my work around is not worth $25. So I just ordered one on ebay from mixtea. Heard someone else mention they had good luck. Will probably use your pvc box idea and opt for a slightly larger one. Thanks! Will be back in 1-2 weeks to look over the wiring info on here.
