Q: As I want an easy fix solution [plug & play] - Is the RWB27 a direct replacement for the Landis & Gyr RWB30, i.e. utilizing the original back plate / fixings, plug in method connections, and original house wiring.
For additional info - The original boiler is a Myson Economist WM30 / 40 with separate 3 way motorised valve, Immersion Tank c/w stat and a room stat.
A: Yes the RWB27 would do that. It's a very easy 10-minute job.
Q: Can I replace a REV11 with this thermostat
A: No. I would recommend the RDE10.1 (HCO code 25A01).
Q: How exactly do you turn the timeswitch from 2 on/offs to 3 on/offs? I cannot see this explained in the instructions.
A: There is a switch on the back of the unit. You will need to press the reset button on the front after changing it.
Make sure you switch off the electric before removing it from it's backplate.

Q: As you look at the front of the timeswitch, (as in your online pic), are the backplate terminals on the left-hand or right-hand side?
