I have a Trane Taystat 241 analog thermostat that I am replacing

Customer Question

I have a Trane Taystat 241 analog thermostat that I am replacing with a Honeywell TH 6110D. I also have a Honeywell RTH 7500D as a back-up. The Trane has R, B, G1, Y1, W1, W2. The Honeywell 6110D has G, W, C, Y R, Rc. Not sure what the RTH 7500D has since it is a back-up in case the 6110D is the wrong one.

Is the Trane that I have a 2 stage heat, 1 stage cool with NO heat pump? How do I connect the wires?

You typed Taystat, is that the correct name of your original thermostat?

TRANE TAYSTAT 241 is the old analog thermostat that I am replacing in my 9 year old home.
