New here with a newly purchased 2022. In attempts to decipher all the info. being feed through the fire hose, I've come up with a question about the operating temperature that I'm sure has been asked a 100 times, so please be patient if it has.

In regards to the T-Bob, wouldn't a simple change of the thermostat to one that operates in a higher temperature range (180 degree F), not solve the cold operating temperature problem?

yes, but that's not the biggest issue; the biggest issue is the cold shocking of the cylinder which happens regardless of the thermostat temp rating and regardless of ambient temps. Read Bill's (Watt-Man's) testing data here: http://watt-man.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Art_TB_Testing.pdf the one on the bottom of page 4 is the most enlightening IMO.

That's the basics but I think you get the idea. Best wishes
Roger. Makes sense.

Thanks for clarifying
