It's says right on the bag that it sets in 20-30 mins, and work time is 15 mins. I could have hit it was rapid coat or 3 in 1 and could have sanded it by now. It is a little thick because of the corner bead, but I'm working on 24 hours.

I do drywall and never ran into that situation with hot mud. I have with compound from the bucket in a very cold or damp environment, but rare. Usually ready to sand after setting overnight.

Weird.
Frustrating, I know
The fans with help.

Sounds like an open bag that has been around a while. I have been told that sometimes the hardeners separate out in the bag.Not sure if that is true or not but I have had the same thing happen to me with old open bags.
I'll make a note of what you said.
I have two open bags in my trailer. Not much in either one, I may just toss
