The stairs are level as with all the walling in the basement. I feel like the builders just didn't poor level for some reason. I know the layout of the house changed during construction and wonder if...

Thanks. I think that was a problem when I couldn't find one of the voltages. Also one wire was loose. Now I have 24v going to out through wiring to AC. Need to recheck for 24v outside.
