    One end of a secondary air tube fell down. Hopefully, no biggie, but I have to wait until things cool down to get at it. So, might be a little cool in the morning. :(

    Well, I let the fire go out, more or less, overnight and did what the manual said: put the tube in a vise grip and hit it with a hammer. It's a lot less "elegant" than the Quadrafire way of clips-never had a problem with those. I think I removed that tube for cleaning and maybe didn't pound it in enough, although I thought I did. BTW, I had to use the vise grip/hammer method to get the tube out for that. Maybe I'll try to squeeze the brush past it next time. Anyway, coming back up to temp.
