Besides the slower turnover, that is what mine souned like Monday when my timer bit the dust and it was cold. 17*

Very good start man!

Tonight it is a low 7*. I am not taking the chance with that timer. As soon as I hit send here, pluging her in for the entire night.

I wish I had that luxury.

The cold start sounds good. Exactly like mine.

I am going to get my batteries load tested later this week however just to be sure.
