From Larry Petkov, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
The Unforgettable Fire LLC was the most outstanding customer support experience in my entire life. All my questions related to utilizing the product properly were promptly covered by Roger Lehet (the stove designer himself), Vanessa Kelly and Erik Beck. It is hard to put the communication with one of them above another. They are experts and even everyone has busy life, they will make themselves available to familiarize in depth with your situation. They will do that very methodically, spending all the time needed to cover any little detail. No any sign of impatience or rush. I want to put on pedestal my communication with Erik Beck who was my main contact as dealer for Canada. He was accessible literally 24/7 since I contacted him first over 3 months ago.
This feedback is not biased by any relation to those people. They don’t even know me and I am thousands kilometers away. Yet they exercised attention and care, like if I was well known old friend. I would welcome opportunity to meet them some day in person. I would strongly recommend this company and their products to anyone who may consider as heating solution.

One of the very FIRST things I did after the installation was completed, was to cook a beef rib-eye steak inside the LeSharo on the cooktop of the Kimberly stove, and it worked wonderfully — mmmmm, DELICIOUS!
As mentioned above, the Kimberly stove in our LeSharo RV was planned to have an off-grid thermal-electric generator capable of re-charging the RV batteries with heat — just like a solar panel system would if — I say: “IF” — the sun were shining in the rainy Pacific Northwest in winter, LOL. These thermal electric chargers are available from TEG Power dot com for about $420 and are a GREAT and economical alternative to solar power when the sun is behind the clouds.
Meanwhile, our Kimberly installed in the LeSharo is also very efficiently running a thermal-electric fan to circulate warm air in the LeSharo — entirely without any external power — shown in this video, all from burning just some small chunks of Pres-To-Logs, available from any Lowe’s or Home Depot store along your routes of travel for about $5.95 for a package of 6. A package of 6 Pres-To-Logs will easily last you a weekend of cold weather camping.
The first thing that got my attention about this wonderful Kimberly wood-burning stove development project is that it is NOT being outsourced to China for manufacture! The jobs it creates are staying right here in America where they belong! When I learned THAT, I decided that it certainly deserves my further attention, and that’s just what I gave it.
Then, the more I researched it, the more I liked it, and, moreover — wonder of wonders — I discovered that it’s being manufactured practically in my back yard: right here in my own beloved Southern Oregon.
