Wall Timer Wiring Issue


I have a similar issue and so need help with determining correct wiring.

Bought a GE digital timer switch to replace one 3-switch in the following:

Two 3-way switches control two outside lights. Each 3-way has two black and one red wire. Should I be able to simply replace one 3-way, using only the same wires?

Are your current setup of the two three-way switches functioning properly?

Wall Timer Wiring Issue


The current, standard 3-way switch set up is working correctly.

Wall Timer Wiring Issue


Any thoughts as to if I should be good to use only the wires connected to the standard 3-way? I ask because 1) it's a $30 timer switch I don't want to burn up and 2) the instructions has two sets of directions based on if it's connected to load or line - but both my standard existing 3-ways seem to wired the same.
