Is the best or only way to skip particular stations that were put in for future yard expansion - to put zero minutes on the station run time - or is there another way to skip a station until you need it. And every time I make a change to a program do I have to hold both left and right arrows down to save my changes?

All controller timers use "0" minutes to keep the zone off and some will change the display to "off". For a Rainbird ESP-ME uses both arrows at the same time to save the program. Are the future zones wired? Just use zero for time.

Your timer is expandable using modules, those zones will not be presented without modules. However, if you have three of four zones wired it will only be a problem to accidentally program zone 4 and you are using a pump motor with a pump relay wired. The pump will run with nowhere for the pressure to go. City water will not make any difference since there is no valve to open. Newer digital timers can recognize a shorted solenoid at a valve and will flag the zone but not an open in that zone so it will allow it to be programmed.
