Do you have a meter to test the switches with?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
why is there such a delay
Expert:  Kelly replied 9 months ago.

The delay is because it is Labor Day and there are not many experts on right now. I have many questions going and it takes time to research and respond. I opened your question to see if anyone else is available but it appears that there is no one available.
