bmoran4. thanks for this explanation. yes, i had a post some time ago about this transformer but the member didn't want to take his apart and get some pictures for me but that was alright. i put it on the shelf until i seen this post about these breakers and decided to give it another shot. got the breaker and wired them as you stated but the red light stays on which to my understanding only the green light stays on and the red goes on when the breaker trips. so, either these breakers aren't the right ones, i wired it wrong, or just put it back on the shelf in which i pick the latter. thanks for your concern and help.
