Well.. Got my first cooler!

image I know this looks exactly like a previously posted thread. So I apologize on that. But for the next couple of days I'll be prepping my cooler (maybe doing some small designs on it for fun lol) and figured I would start a thread.
I went for a decent size one. Plenty of room to grow!

    Hard to tell, is the that CAO Soprano's stick?

    I was so very anti-cooler until I got mine. Easy to set up, easy to maintain!

    Jacob....take the training wheels off and get a 300qt cooler!!!That one is fine for now, though.

    There he goes again, not thinking before posting.

    There have been so many times I have started a comment or post and deleted it because it could be taken as an opportunity to bomb me. You have to watch your mouth around here.

    just a small little update. Got it cleaned off and currently resting over night with cleaner and water in it. Will dump in the morning and leave in the sun for about 8 hours. Then pulling it in and either putting baking soda in a bowl and placing inside and closing, or newspaper to soak up any smell. then will check back in the morning to check for smells!

    I wouldn't leave it overnight with "cleaner" sitting in there. And my concern may be unfounded but I would worry a bit that the cleaner might infuse it's odor into the plastic. I may be wrong about that but if it were mine I'd go ahead and rinse it out with warm/hot water and get all that cleaner rinsed out now and start letting it air dry overnight. Then tomorrow go ahead with the other preparations you mentioned. Just my 2 cents.

    image Small update Just trying to get the beads to soak up some water and letting the couple of boxes I'm ganna use for storage get up to par.
  • EoLEoL Posts: 182
    maybe someone can help me out. My cooler wont drop below 80 on the hygrometer (it reads 3 high. lol) I have tried everything that I have read up on to lower the humidity. Any suggestions??
  • RainRain Posts: 8,960 ✭✭✭
    14-ish lbs of kitty litter did it for me.

  • Bob_LukenBob_Luken already sucked before joining forum,.....just sayin'.Posts: 8,150 ✭✭✭✭✭
    How long has it been reading 80? And what is the humidity of the room? How full is your cooler?

    its been reading 80 for about 12+ hours. I have been trying to get it lower before I put all my cigars in. I have some silica beads in there currently. Tempted to try boveda packs. Honestly, everywhere down here is majorly humid. Thats florida. hahah xD

    On my first kl experiment myself, but I read a thread on another forum about someone using kl in Florida. The poster had a similar issue and would put the kl in the oven to reduce the rh before putting it in the humi. I found the thread searching for someone using the ambient wireless hygrometer, which this guy was. Search on that and u should find it. Pretty detailed
  • That's small cooler but looking nice.. IS it cigar cooler...
  • Bob_LukenBob_Luken already sucked before joining forum,.....just sayin'.Posts: 8,150 ✭✭✭✭✭
    You can get some Kitty Litter (Test the RH in a closed container) and add it straight to the cooler or bake it if needed. (Google that.) KL is cheap and you can experiment with it, toss it aside, and you still got 7 more pounds to play with.
  • Nice cooler, wish you to be full of all kind of cigars. I am still deciding whether to buy myself one or not.
