Cleaned the KA6 today. What I mess I was. Now it's going to sit for a week in hot and humid update NY. Would it help or hurt to run the idle blower to have air movement? I'm thinking to keep it dry. I can remove the timer pins and turn off the low aquastat (digital).

Just put a 100watt light bulb in it and close it up.

A drop light with a 100W bulb is what I've done before.

That would probably be fine as well, but most of us have an old trouble light hanging around.
