There are the images, let me know if you need any more images of anything. This is with the new unit currently hooked up, but I still have power disabled to the A/C and Furnace until I have it hooked up correctly.
Hi, I'm Brian. I'm here to answer your HVAC question to your complete satisfaction!I see that your question is back on the open list and it appears Russ had to leave. If you could take a picture of the front of your old thermostat with the cover off making sure to show the numbers on it that would be helpful. It would also be helpful if you can give brand and model number(s) of the equipment you are trying to control. I will do my best to find a solution for you.
Central Air Conditioner: Goodman CKL130-1L
Furnace Model: Goodman Janitrol GPD050-3 REV B

It was the new unit. There was 27ish volts going to all 3 wires. I took it back and exchanged for a new unit. Pretty obvious when the new unit powered up with AA batteries. Thanks for all the help, it helped to know I was on the right track with the wiring before assuming it was the unit.
