© Travis Industries 93508061 4150520
Please read this entire manual before you install and use your new room heater. Failure to
follow instructions may result in property damage, bodily injury, or even death. Contact
local building or fire officials about restrictions and installation inspection requirements in
your area.
Planning The Installation
We suggest that you have an authorized Travis Industries dealer install your stove. If you install the
stove yourself, your authorized dealer should review your installation plans.
Check with local building officials for any permits required for installation of this stove and notify your
insurance company before proceeding with installation.
The location of your wood heater in your home will decide how affectively the heat produced will spread
throughout your house. Attention to the home design with consideration of natural convection and air
circulation should be taken into account when choosing the placement of your heater within the home.
Preparation for Installation
Check for damage to the exterior of the stove (dents should be reported, scratches can be fixed by
applying touch up paint).
Check the interior of the firebox (replace cracked firebrick and make sure baffle is in place).
The stove can be lightened by removing the firebricks and baffle (pg 38) - replace before operation.
Additional Accessories Needed for Installation
Legs or Pedestal
Packing List
• Top Air Chamber Extension (used for inserts only) • (4) Screws (for the Top Air Chamber Extension)
• Damper Rod (for the Top Air Chamber Extension) • Pull Tool (used to adjust the damper when hot)
