Playing with my new Pocono and I moved the TS to the room upstairs. Frankly, I don't care if the furnace area in the basement is 70 or 100C it's the temperature in the house I care about. So I am adjusting the approximate temp by playing with FR based on weather guesses. My theory is open up the house and let convection do the work, accurate temp control is not for my application - the Romans taught us that. Cold air return is God. The bottom line here is that the stove was working at max for a while (my error) - man does that thing chuck out heat. Phoned Jerry at the factory for clarification on one point on the coaltrol and he admitted that the UL testing showed 122,000 BTU - of course he can't claim that or even comment. WWWOOOOWWWW - love that incredibly ugly big black box.
Jerry, perhaps I'm just more stupid that the rest here but explain why the max feed rate was at 40 but the FR kept on rising to up to 99. Remember the stove thought that it was not satisfying the temp needs due to TS location.
