    Be sure it's a quality surge protector and not the typical cheap strip job that has very limited protection. The one on Amazon is good but this one from the same manufacturer is a bit better in my humble opinion. It has substantially higher Joules protection and for not that much more money:

    Shaw, here is that video I promised... not my best work but I hope you get the idea.



    The stove is located in my "basement", its a bi-level. and its all paneling for acoustic sake.

    Yeah its not to bad. I mean the blower is only 120cfm at max setting. The more I learn about my stove the more I don't think its bad. Once the off season comes I plan on making some in depth videos on the stove, cleaning, possible some modifications unless that's frowned on here.

    We have a few women here too. Most are pellet experts, some are newbies, all are great people. We've had some real good threads with the women here....One in particular who enjoyed tormenting us....

    Who was that? Damn, her name is on the tip of my tongue.

    No...we know Snowy and Xena :) This woman was asking about venting, if I remember correctly and the conversation promptly went sideways. She was playing with the big boys and she was giving as good as she got. We all had a ball....dammit I wish I had a better memory!

    Yes there are some VERY smart as well as smart-a$$ women here ...and when I say guys I include them in that group. we have good guys...and "tonys" (who need to change their screen names and try again) One woman I think "Lake lady" I credit with the saying I use daily..."dont argue with ignorant people...they bring you down to their level ...then beat you with experiance" love it...allthough she mostlikely used proper spelling...;sick
