I’ve read through several of the older posts and they were very helpful. I am getting a loose gas cap error and i am unable to fill my tank. I replaced the vent valve hoping for an easy fix but no dice. I lightly blew air through the charcoal filter and there was zero obstruction. I did get a few pellets (5-10) so I’m curious is that normal? With the canister unconnected I am still unable to fill the gas tank. I don’t hear any pressure release when I open the gas cap which I’d think is odd if there is buildup. Any tips on what I should try next? Thank you in advance

Not normal. Time to blow out those lines and replace the canister. Once the pellets are loose it’s all over but the cryin’.

Old man winter came early eh? It's been in the 50s here the last two nights too, very cold for us warm-blooded Floridians!

According to the weather people who track the timing of these things (but still can't predict very well) our first snow a few weeks ago was about 10 days later than average, although it didn't amount to much. The Canadian low that came down and touched us should be hitting the upper Midwest with a wallop. But it's been cold here, single digits at night and highs below freezing during the day. We'll get into the 40s today if the prognosticators are correct, maybe give the furnace some time off.

I remember attending a convention in Orlando one year in January. The temp outside was about 65° and I walked out of the hotel, enjoying the warmth. But the doorman rushed out to warn me to put on a jacket since it was too cold to go without one. I guess it's all relative.

Indeed it is. We have relatives from up north coming into town and they will surely want to go swimming! Brrr!!!
