Hi Rod......well, I picked up an old G5400 this past weekend, and just got it up about 15 minutes ago. Being used, I was abit skeptical that it would still work, as it had been sitting outside, upside down for years, yet it still worked. I too used 6 conductor thermostat wire. Only complaint sofar is that the accuracy of the meters is something to be desired. Now to get a controller/tracker, and am looking at the ST-2 at the moment.
