Yes, I do feel that I needed to ask the question. I have noticed a significant reduction in post over the past months and thought that HHT would have the issues corrected in the new production models.
I ordered the Mt. Vernon in June of 08 and was not aware of the issues. I asked the dealer about all the technoligy and any problems that they have been having. The dealer told me that they had some bugs when the stoves were first issued, but have had all the bugs worked out of them now. He assured me that the Mt. Vernon was by far the best multi fuel heating appliance on the market. The dealer that I am buying this stove through has been in buisness for 30 years and deals in only pellet, coal, wood space heating appliances. His reputation in the local buisness community is very good. On the other hand he is in the buisness to sell stoves!
I would still like additional information if any current is available on recent installs of Mt. Vernon AE units.
