    Newbie setup....

    All,

    So I have searched and looked and maybe been blind, but is there a comprehensive (or at least somewhat detailed) manual or post with how to set up the heater meter? Maybe I haven't looked hard enough or maybe I can't find what I'm looking for...... So, not to inflame the RTFM crowd (I looked for the M).

    I have a new heater meter straight from the source
    I have a Raspberry Pi 3b
    I have a Roto RD3

    Is there a simple place that will tell me to hook all this stuff up?

    Additionally, I would like the ideas you all have with regards to hooking the RD3 to a WSM lower vent.

    I might need to go through more of the roto thread.....

    Cheers

    And shout out to Mr. Bostwick for hooking me up with the sweet RD3 build.

    Look around in the wiki everything is there.

    I used these guides:

    The boards are already built. The issues are: Connecting the Pi to the HM. Building the RD3 and connecting that. Plugging the whole thing in.

    Look at the firmware installation video. What you're looking for is in there!

    I'm also curious as to how people have hooked up their RD3 to the WSM. I know the "dog bowl" is a thing but I'm not sure what to buy and how to connect it.
