I have no "C" wire to alow the remote to work form my transformer. I'm woundering if it's possible to get power to a "C" wire/conection from the two wires I have? Or how I can get power to a "C" wire since it needs to have a postive and a negitive to complete the circut some how. I would think the "C" wire gets it's negitive from my white wire in side of the 8082c some how. I have a base board heat (water with boiler on gas) with red and white wires that supply 24vac to the 8082c. I called Rite Temp and I have to say they are no help repeating "I need a "C" wire with no idea on how I can get one" also down rite rude on the phone like I was bothering this rep and how dare I ask a question she did not know off the top of her head. I pucheased tow 8082c's so i could use the remotes on differnt channels of course. If this matters also I will be useing them in the same home that is zoned. I'm even going to purchase two more remotes to control the zones from difernt locations in my house.

There is always a common wire on any transformer, regardless of white and red. To find common, take your amp- probe, go from each side of the transformer to ground until you get 24 volts. When you do get 24 volts , that's the common side of the transformer.

Does this unit come with a hook up for a C wire?
