Hey guys, I was sitting and watching the fire last night and something dawned on me…I am not sure I am using my stove 100% correctly. I have owned my Jotul Oslo for 3 years now, and each is getting better, mainly due to dry wood finally. I do have some basic questions about the air control and maintenance on it. Can you tell me how you guys control the air? How long do you let it burn on high before starting to turn it down? Do you turn it down in stages all the time? Do you even shut the air control off completely in order to maximize the time in between reloads? On that topic, how often are you reloading and when you do, are you packing it full or putting 3-5 splits in at a time? I burn mixed hardwoods only. One other thing I wanted to know is the rope seal. I noticed that my seal started to come off in the corner, but I was able to tuck it back in place and it seemed to be fine. Should I just replace it to be safe? How often should I be replacing it? Anything else I should be checking on a yearly basis outside of the standard cleaning? THANKS! I can't believe I have these questions 3 years in, but I just want to make sure I am getting the most out of my stove.
