Galaxy Dimension - fully removing RF RIO

Hi all,

I've had intermittent RF Jam errors with the RF RIO on my Galaxy Dimension, and as the zones covered are non-essential, I decided to remove the RF RIO entirely and revert to the wired sensors.

I physically disconnected the RF RIO from the main alarm panel, terminating the alarm bus properly.

I then exited Engineer Mode. The panel noted the missing RF RIO, then removed it and associated zones.

All seemed good for a while, (2 hrs?) but then I got RF Supervisory errors because (surprise, surprise) the panel wasn't receiving supervisory messages from the RF RIO.

So then I changed RF Parameters/Supervision (option 60) to 'Silent Alarm'

But now it seems the lack of RF Rio is preventing the alarm setting properly, showing RF SUPER errors.

There are other parameters I could tweak which might solve this problem (eg setting 53 RF Stop Mode to 0, 'Disabled'). But this seems like a bodge.

Is there something else I need to do to remove the RF RIO fully? How do I tell the panel to stop looking for a RF RIO?

The lack of a RF RIO shouldn't be considered a fault, should it? Not every alarm system has one.
