Hello,

I currently have a 30 year old Alaska Kodiak Stoker. It is starting to show it's age and I've been interested in replacing it with the
Leisure Line Pioneer LE rear vent. I've been searching for pictures of the stove especially where the vent on the back is. I would
like to just switch the Pioneer with the Alaska with little to no alterations to my current setup. Does anyone have pics or tell me
where I can find some?

Thanks Dave looking forward to seeing the pictures. I have an insulated chimney and the pipe is very low center on the
Alaska I have and am hoping it is close to the same place on the Pioneer I'm looking at. I do have some wiggle room on the
hearth but not a lot.

Hi Pete ,
I did not see any emails from you except on this forum, but I did also give you our phone # to call. This time of year things can get very hectic and it is hard to get to all the emails. Again that was why I gave the ph #. I have not forgotten about the pics just have not had the chance to get them and I apologize for that. I will do what I can on Mon or if I get chance on Sunday. I have also been busy with shows and Fairs. Dave

Thanks Dave,
I am leaning toward the Pioneer LE rear vent just have to make sure it fits my current setup.
I saw the phone number, I'm a teacher and don't have time during the day and by the time
I get home it's after 6pm. That's the same trouble I'm having with the local dealer. He's
only open Tues. - Fri till 5pm and a 45 minute drive from Athol Ma. I'm going to have to take a day off to see the stoves in person.
From what I've been reading, Leisure Line makes a quality stove.
I read in the owners manual that you should take all the coal out at the end of the season and brush down and vacuum it out and
disconnect the chimney and put newspaper in it to absorb moisture. Could I also give the inside of the hopper and stove a spray
of WD-40?
Thanks for your help

You would be surprised how late you will call and get a human answering a phone . Either way I will get the pictures on Mon for sure, possibly Sunday. I believe people have good luck with LPS instead of WD 40.
The most damage to a hopper happens by leaving coal in it all summer or having improper draft when operating. If you see sweat on a hopper lid while operating things need to be corrected.

Is there a specific LPS product the food grade, or LPS 1, 2 or 3?
Wish I knew this with the current stove. But can't complain have gotten 22 continuous years
out of hopefully the Pioneer will last even longer.
Dave thanks again for all the info you are the owner of the company?

Thanks for the pics Dave, it's going to be tight but it should work. I'm going to have a buddy of mine that works in HVAC check it
out too. If need be, could I have about a 1/2" trimmed of the legs before it
leaves the factory?

Can you use an adjustable elbow they can be twisted to work as an offset instead of an elbow as well. Would be the best solution. Cutting any off the legs puts the convection fan real close to the floor but we can do it. I would rather lower the hole a 1/2" if really needed. Why are the tolerance's so close? Just curious of the situation most times there is more variability with the pipe joints involved. But whatever you need done we can do. Just please don't wait too much longer custom work get a little tougher as the season gets crazy. Not trying to rush you but just how it is this time of year.
Thanks, Dave

Dave here are a couple of pictures of my current setup. Let me know if
any others would be helpful.
The old Alaska flue pipe is very low and I'm looking to just switch
them out. I have my HVAC guy coming this weekend so I'll get you an
exact measurement from the floor to the bottom of the collar coming out of the stove.
Again thanks for your time and help. I've been reading a lot of good things about
Leisure Line. I'm looking to order it in Late Jan. - early Feb. when I get my tax return.
I'm still looking to go though the dealer in Three Rivers Ma. he has been very helpful too.
Pete

No baro never needed one there is always been good up draft. It was inspected by the local building inspector and he signed off on it.
There isn't room inside for one I could put one where the pipe goes out onto the front porch. There are a couple lengths of uninsulated
pipe before it goes back into the insulated pipe through the porch ceiling and roof. Do I really need one?
I have been thinking about it rather than alter the stove, my hvac guy said I can shorten the length of insulated pipe going through
the wall and I'll still be fine on clearances and that should give enough room to use an adjustable elbow.
