    Check your t-stat wire for a short.

    And no I wasn't staying up for anyone's account, just wanted to stay on my otherwise normal schedule.

    Alright, thought I would update everyone who cared (so if anyone searches down the road for a similar thread, although doubtful, there is a solution). Check continuity, and sure enough, there's a short somewhere along the line. The problem is we ran the wiring when we were finishing the room, so it's completely enclosed behind a finished pine beam. I'm just going to opt for the Fire Genie wireless T-Stat from Regency which I wanted in the first place.

    That would be consistent with the other t-stat not working also.

    Yep, but in my defense the installer didn't even have it wired correctly. He much have either

    A. Knew there was a short, and decided to not tell me, and just make it looked hooked up and hope for the best.

    B: Really thought he had it wired right and never tested it.

    Regardless, he's proof as to why I LOATHE hiring anyone to do anything anymore. I'm ok with the fact that it took me this long to figure it out because I'm stupid. For a trained "professional" that has my money, it's unacceptable. Thanks to EVERYONE on here who put up with my ignorance, and provided the help. Appreciate it.
