Dana, Stumper had a thread going on that and it looked like mainly cost.

In particular I am concerned about what their responce will be if there is an issue that I can not solve (with the help of this site and or the dealer).

After you listed out the issues, I do see your concern.

I hope you never find something that stumps this group. ;)

I understand that you loose efficency with anti freeze as well.  Also this is the first time I will have had more then 4 days off in a row in more the 7 years so a repeat every year is unlikely.

I have pulled and additional line through the conduit and wired an additional outlet.  Thankfully I installed conduit instead of direct burial.

I can't discuss this in technical terms but I know there is anti-freeze and there is anti-freeze--meaning that you do not use automobile anti-freeze, rather you use RV anti-freeze. You are correct that you loose efficiency by using automobile anti-freeze.

Hi Stumper
My E-classic thermostat goes down to 150F.
My oil boiler is set to 170F (e-classic is set to 187F).

When I idle e-classic to 150F, the wrap around pump (on oil boiler) and heat exchanger (works both ways) keeps water in e-classic above 160F, and works as heat storage.

Try this (lower e-classic to 150F), and I think blower, and air vent solonoids will stay off, if you have addtional boiler e-classic is connecting to with heat exchanger.

I think only heat losses is going up chimney (from hot water jacket around boiler), but that is in both directions with both my inside oil boiler and outside wood boiler.
I think this is case as I can see heat rising from my oil boiler chimney, even when it is not running.

Well I got the offical notice this week from my dealer from CB to remove all the interior fire bricks on the walls inside the fire box that they are no longer neccisary!!! So there ya have it, take em out they say it will be easier to clean and will not affect the performance. They also enclosed a flier on bridging and how to prevent it, and how to keep your fire buring hot..LOL best of luck to all. I have about half the bricks in and the other half as you know have fallen out.

My dealer told me the same thing. Rick Young in Conway,NH has been extremely helpful to me as a CB dealer. He goes out of his way to check on my eclassic and even made a site visit on his own accord- I am an hour from him in Maine.
I have taken a lot of the brick out on the left side  - all are still present on the right- I suspect this might help with the bridging issue too. Any chance you could post the flyer regarding bridging on this site??? Thanks.

ooppppppss - forgot to ask
Does anyone know if the brick in the reaction chamber are set in there or are they glued in with furnance cement. Luckily , I took some pictures of the primary burn chamber and the reaction chamber before I fired my stove up. They prove helpful to look at once in a while to refresh my memory of what things looked like when the stove was new. I think once the stove gets several years of use and  I need to do more maintainence on it, the pictures will help even more.
I am anxious to see what changes CB makes next year to correct issues that we have faced in 08-09.

LeeAllen, yes they are glued/cemented in and I had one that fell out during shipping.  I installed it with firebox cement purchased at Home Cheapo and it still is in, about $6.

I have pics of the entire unit at different sections I will try and post.
