Default Primary, seccondary. Etc

As a general rule when should I switch from my primary into my seccondary fermenter?

When the wine is about 1.010 or so, or when fermentation starts to slow down a bit but is still active. For me, it's usually 5-7 days depending on the temperature and what I'm making.
