Miss Truman pellets they were like the old CUBEX pellets. Good luck with the stove how is the purge feature?They do not offer the wireless remote anymore, too many connectivity issues.
But I can say I like the wired remote so far, leaving it wired for now to see how it works during the winter.
I did notice the wired remote keeps the temperature within 2 degrees, meaning when set to 68° it comes on at 67° and goes out at 69°.
I'll be watching this to see how it heats the other room where the thermostat for the HVAC is mounted.
The wired remote offers the ability to maintain the temperature range up to six degrees if I remember correctly.
I'll be running this with Truman Pellets this winter to see how well it does.
Cool weather moving in next week so that will give me a chance to get it dialed in some.

So far the purge feature works well, clears the burn pot well. Very little ash going into the catch can most of it lands on top beside the burn pot.Miss Truman pellets they were like the old CUBEX pellets. Good luck with the stove how is the purge feature?
My bias up front I still prefer a wood burning stove to a pellet stove.What’s the verdict after almost a season of use?
How did the annual cleaning go?My bias up front I still prefer a wood burning stove to a pellet stove.
My reason for purchasing a pellet stove was ease of operation for my wife during the winter while I was working overseas and the 26% tax write off.
With that said the ease of operation worked well for her and it provided plenty heat to keep the house warm, I have fuel oil as back-up heat and hardly burned any from Nov to the end of Jan.
The amount of pellets used varied and was all dependent on the temperature outside. I averaged from as low as three bags a week to a bag a day. On the coldest days I would fill the hopper in the morning set the temperature gauge to 70° and would fill the hopper before going to bed, needles to say we didn't go outside much on those days.
I did start a thread about the ash pan and ash collection, I couldn't figure out why most of the ash was collecting on the surface around the burn-pot and not in the catch pan. After looking at the design, the fan operation and the purge feature I figured this was an intended design feature. Even with burning a bag a day there was no issue with ash build up.
With that said I do a monthly cleaning on a weekly basic as it only takes a couple more minutes and just helps the unit work more efficient. Plus it should make the annual cleaning even easier, we'll see.
And as stated earlier we decided to get the Trekker because of the looks, turns out it works well.
And as you can tell from the picture my cat likes it as well.
In May I will find out just how much a PIA this annual cleaning thing is.
