    Ok, tried my store bought fans with a charger I snuck around my fiance and the fan works!
    I've been messing with the settings and after getting no where with erratic temps for on/off, I made a water wiggler thing. Stuck the temp reader probe in it and tried again. Got close last night, but the power went out and I called it a night. The humidity has been 30-35%.
    Today I plugged it back in and after messing with it just a tad, I have the numbers below. Do I need to make it higher? If so, what #s?

    Light goes ON at 100.0, it goes OFF at 100.9.
    Ok, it needs more adjusting. 99 on, 101 off.
    Is that close enough...? lol

    I'm just being paranoid, eh?
    Thanks! Waiting for my hens to leave me some eggs, they are protesting I guess...
