    Edward, in 2. REPLACE ON/OFF SWITCH”, just pull wires off the original on/off switch TH/TP and TH terminal plugs, and replace with the remotes wires from your new Durablow devices Black or red box, now your remote control tells it when to turn on/off.

    In “2. REPLACE ON/OFF SWITCH” . I’m confused. Do I cut the wires from the old on/off toggle switch and connect the 2 wires from the TR-2001 to the 2 wires that then go somewhere to the fireplace? Then the original on/off toggle switch would not be connected to anything. I made a diagram but no way to send it to you. The user manual does not address this.
