Where can I get a printout of the operating manual?
Is there anything I need to know about wetting the air sack of the sf-610, or adding water, or adding an ice pak.
No manual or ice paks or remote came with the purchase today at Frys
Thanks Ed Keyes

Re: Purchased a sf-610 today floor model, no manual
Hi, I would start with the store where you bought it. Sounds like you got an incomplete unit. If not, they may be able to get a manual out of another unit. Don't see any manuals on line but 1-800-330-0388 is their phone number for customer service. Explain to them the situation and ask for technical services. They should be able to send you a manual and answer any questions you have on the unit. Write them all down before you call them. Hope I have helped.

Airpurge means the sack is made of a high quality waterproof fabric that allows air to escape freely from inside the sack when you are compressing it, without letting water or air in from the outside. This is helpful because the entire goal of using a compression sack is to get the air that is trapped inside your lofty sleeping bag out. that is how the compression sack is able to make the size smaller, and airpurge makes it all easier.
sleeping bag is usually sold with a stuff sack, which just refers to the
(usually nylon) bag that the sleeping bag comes in. If space in your backpack
is not an issue, than the provided stuff sack will be fine for you, but keep in
mind that it is not totally waterproof because water can enter in through the
opening at the top. A compression sack is a separate sack that you can buy if
you want to pack your sleeping bag into a smaller size. The compression sack
shrinks the size by allowing you to use straps to squeeze any excess air out of
the sleeping bag. The straps are connected to a piece of fabric that can cover
the opening of the sack and make it completely water-proof.
You should try to avoid this for several reasons. First, it will make your sleeping bag stink and potentially become moldy, as well as the inside of the compression sack. Next, it may reduce the warmth rating of your sleeping bag because moisture will become trapped inside the fabric. Finally, it defeats the purpose of having a waterproof sack if you put something wet inside of it. If your sleeping bag is caught in the rain and you don't have time to hang it out before hitting the trail, try to take it out within a few hours and get it dry. You can also flip the compression sack inside out and let it dry, it will dry very quickly.
When you say filled with ice/ water, is it just an evaporative cooler? in which case it is really only a fan. If it is a proper a/c unit, try emptying the bin you have filled up and try again. Most a/c units have a water bin that fills and switches off the unit by a float switch until you empty it and it runs again. Let me know how you get on! Mike
