RCBS Chargemaster 1500 Combo

I just got a new one and it seems to work great. The instructions say to operate near room temperature. I have been reloading in my garage for 25 years, where the temperature could vary from 30 to 100 degrees. Am I going to have problems? How serious is RCBS about "room temperature?" Does anyone have any experience with temperature extremes interfering with, or damaging, digital measures and scales?

I also use the 1500 and have heard about the temp changes. I load in my garage also, but take the 1500 in at night then bring it out when I load. I noticed when it first started to chill that the 1500 took longer to warm, hence taking it inside. However, the 1500 does work great!

I have a RCBS 1500 Combo. Would never go back again to the beam.

I called RCBS and got info on reprogramming the dispense timming.

Works great now.
