Fan/light wiring from 2 switches to combo switch
I am replacing 2 switches with an all-in-one switch with speeds and a dimmer. Trying to figure out the wiring.

The fan switch has 2 black wires and the light switch has a black and red wire.

The new combo switch has

Black - labeled TO MOTOR L
Green/Yellow stripe - Ground
Blue - labeled FOR LIGHT
Black/White stripe labeled AC IN L

This is what I am assuming

Red from old > Blue on new
Black from old fan > Black
Other black from old > Black/White

Am I on the right path?

What you had is two switch legs before. Most likely on the same circuit. The wiring should go as you say and one of the original switch feeds would get capped off. Just make sure you know which wires are the hots and which go to the fan and light.
