I know you need to feed the RMH more frequently but jeez man we are having to literally burn non stop and feed every 3-5 minutes to keep going, is this normal?

Investigate trying to Increase the length of the wood that you burn,see the 1st picture in your "help - panic'' thread it should be self feeding !, when your house is warm and your fire is out you can close a damper or cover the feed tube at the top of the barrel ! be safe keep warm, pyro-magic-ly yours Allen L.
