5 Way GE Z-Wave Switch Integration Problems

I have just started my home automation and tried doing this crazy 5 way switch for my outside driveway lights and spot lights. This install consisted of 1 master and 3 slave switches. After the installation everything was working except one of the slave switches was not turning off. After a lot of trouble shooting I found that the switch had power on the neutral. So i pulled everything out and started tracing it down. I believe I found the problem which was a hidden 2 cable wire which I believe goes to the load. At this point I have been staring at the wiring so much I just sat down and made a diagram. I wanted to ask if anyone saw an easy fix in the diagrams.

Original wiring with the 5 way switches.

Actually was pretty easy when I got to look at it on paper this morning. Everything is working properly. If it helps anyone in the future here is the final diagram.

Welcome to the forums.

I came in late last night but due to their size I couldn't read your diagrams. What you
need to do next time is make the diagrams big, put them on a free photo hosting site
(I use photobucket) and leave a link to the pictures here.

Anyway.... glad you got your problem worked out.
