It was a stupid question. The hardware Serial to USB does not need a sketch to run separately sorry for the confusion. It assigns a com port and works off the internally set serial protocol.I just tried a Sparkfun USB to Serial TTL 5 volts and it worked no problem.I think the Tx/Rx is mislabeled on this device link below because I revered them and finally got this to work with all of the great help. I am very thankful for all your time and a lesson to be learned!!
