1. Remove all accessories from inside the stove; lift off
the griddle, load door and front doors.
Defiants and Vigilants shipped from the factory have a
wooden wedge inside the stove to hold the damper
closed during shipment. Leave this wedge in place
until after the legs are installed.
2. With assistance, remove the stove from the pallet
and place it close to its installed location. If your
stove has a porcelain enamel finish, use a piece of
cardboard or a drop cloth to cushion the ash lip and
top plate.
3. If the stove is already installed, disconnect the chim-
ney connector.

require at least two people to tilt the stove and a

the floor.
For the Intrepid and Intrepid II, tilt the stove back to rest
on the pallet or wooden blocks.
