Customer Question

I want to install a swamp cooler thermostat that controls two swamp coolers on my roof. On the wall wire box,I have 3 Romex wires coming in the box - Power line and the other two going to the swamp coolers. The thermostat has 5 wires but I don't know where the red, yellow/black and orange/black connect to the 2 Romex cables. Which of the black or white wall wires are connected to the 3 thermostat wires in question?
