Nwjeep, I respect you and your 30 years of camping, I have been camping for 9 years and never experienced this type of problem, But for some reason I just would have a fear of placing cardboard and fiberglass materials in this area. If I did have this problem with the flame blowing out, I think I could come up with an alternative solution, maybe a piece of aluminum the same size as a filter to fit the area with holes in it, NWJeeper what do you think? please I am serious, I would like your input. Is there anyone else with an alternative solution?
