I'm been lurking on this site for a few days now. Last week I picked up an MES 30 20071414 from Bass Pro for $199. Upon furher research I found that this model has some issues. I plan on returning it this week. I'm hearing the one to buy is the MES 30 Gen 1 20070910. I found a great deal on line at Gander Mountain this past Sunday afternoon for about $135. I must have bought one of the last ones becuase it was taken off their website the next day. I'm supposed to pick it up later this week at the store. Gander said an extended two year warranty should run me about $20 and if so, I will opt for that as well.
I need a couple of other things and am looking for suggestions. I need a weatherproof cover and what kind of chips do I buy for break in?
I'm hearing the Amazing box 5 x 8 is the way to go however I'd still like to use the chips once in a while.
I have a covered screened in porch about 14X16. Would it be okay to store out there covered or must I move it into the garage or basement?
