    haha, appreciate it! I actually didn't get an alert from them, per usual :bang:, however I saw a popup from openboxdirect and had another go-round with ordering. Not as good a price as sometimes ($380 for the 80 qt, I think) but still awfully good. I guess I'll see in a few days if my order gets canceled like before or not...

    I think I got it, the guy said I did, but i won't believe it until it's at my door! Was preferring a 63, but this was a good deal...

    After 11 months the compressor computer let its smoke out. It was in the bed of my truck on a trip to TN. One of the Triacs burned up. I thaught about trying to fix it but they put a coating on the board. And would be a PITA!
    Whymer sent me a rebuilt computer.

    I'm not sure why it let the smoke out in the first place. Thaught about putting a small computer fan on the computer.

    I have a small fan plugged in to my inverter that I point at the compressor area on really hot days that I have to close my windows. It has helped tremendously. A small computer fan would be better...

    Looks like they've been "discontinued" on the Open Box Direct site.

    I settled on 43qt & regret it. 4 people are in my family. If you are packing for more than 1 or 2 people don't bother. A family needs a minimum of 63qt or bigger.

    My 43qt works great by the way, but is to small.

    I have the 80qt. I'd gladly trade for a 43qt. It is always just my son and I, at most.

    Although it is nice to be able to fit a whole case of water in the 80qt without unwrapping it. Two+ cases if I open them.
