    I got chance to play in the snow today. I have to say I continue to be impressed by the combination of the Nova stove and the Dawg-A-Nova.
    One question - the stove pulses for a while until fully warmed up. Any thoughts?

    Its rather normal. You can preheat for longer, I use alcohol to preheat. You can also play with the pump outlet valve screw, with my Polaris I can control pulsing by just opening the pump valve a quarter turn instead of fully open. My Novas do not have a valve at the pump (Swedish versions), but usually respond to opening the flame control fully (two and a half turns) to stop any pulsing.

    Kind regards

    @Tron thank you, good to know it's nothing to worry about. I got the same advice from another source so I'll know to only open the tank valve part way next time.
