Thanks!

I noticed some people have just put a piece of wood on the bottom and topped it with cedar, then placed boxes on top of that, does this work well?

I bought some small oak planks to use for shelves in mine from Lowe's. They are really cheap and work. Also....I haven't plugged my drainage hole yet...I haven't had any humidity problems yet...except for when I had the temp turned down to 60F and it ran constantly.

Has anyone tried to use a humidifier like cigar oasis or a similar device? I just wondered how that would work in the VT.

Thanks

I put a cigar oasis XL II in mine. Set it to 65%, went to bed, got up the next morning and the humidity in my vino read 86% :confused: and the unit was still going. Needless to say, I yanked it out of there, repackaged it, and Im mailing it back to the store tomorrow.

Im using 3 lbs of Heartfelt beads now and it is working great.

Thank you. I got a Vino-28 today and ordered beads from Heartfelt, but only got 1 lb. Guess I may have to order more of them.

As an aside, I went to Target today. They had one Vino-28 (the display model) marked down to $139.98. I talked to one of the managers and got an additional 30% off. My Vino-28 was $104.70 (tax included). It's worth your while to talk to the Target people.

I'm just wondering IF you could pull out the inside plastic shell and replace it with a cedar shell would this unit still hold the interior temp and humidity? Also could someone please explain why you would need a fan inside? If you're storing boxes what good would it do to have fans running?
