So if the 10811 is placed in a temperature and humidity controlled 
environment it will do better-just don't apply lagging etc in close 
round the actual oven assy itself?

Presume the aim is to have the humidity as low as possible?

What about the room temperature?  I suppose the 'sweet point' depends 
on the indivdual 10811 unit?
