Hi Everyone, I am back from the hunt, but our party didn't get anything. I did see the back of one deer (I couldn't identify since I only had a buck tag), spooked a bull moose and saw a cow and calf. Overall, it was a great time and great to be in the bush for the week. I just spoke with Lynn from the dealership. The firebox has been welded at the distributor and after they conducted a preliminary visual inspection. From the inspection, the distributor inspector wanted a bit more grinding done and then there should be a final inspection. Hopefully, by tomorrow, it will be approved to be sent back to the dealership by Wednesday. Lynn said that she will try to get it back to me for the weekend. She said she will call tomorrow with an update. I see that there have been a few more stoves with similar issues, since I last posted. I purchased my Pacific insert in 2005, but I am not sure of the date of manufacture. Is there any way to get the date via the serial number etc.? Hog, your repair is looking good! Your EBT was not correctly installed and that could be a factor in your firebox issues. How is the stove running now that you fixed the EBT? Any noticeable difference? Cory mentioned that he would extend my 5 year comprehensive warranty. I am going to call him later today, to see if they can put it in writing.
