It's 80 degrees outside, the primary air is closed (still leaks past the shutter though I'm sure), and the Kodiak's been idling at 99 degrees all day. Now it's more of a dehumidifier than anything else, as it's comfortably dry and only 73 in the house vs. 80 and slightly humid outside.

I know if I jammed the baro open it would go out, but I now wanna to see how long it can maintain 99 or so without going out. The pipe is cool to the touch at 90 degrees, but I still see red coals deep in the bed.

What's not to love about coal?

Hard to believe but I had my Warm Morning shut down tight and full of 100 lbs of Blaschek and it ran for more than 72 hours. No shake down, didn't touch. I found that hard to believe but it happened.

My longest idle with coal was 60 hours. I burned wood for a few days. Won't do that again. Made a mess with it. Best idle with wood was 10 hours :lol:
