I am in need of a chimney extension (approx 3-4 feet) and some sort of a weatherized boot to put through a metal roof.
Does anybody know what brand of chimney was used on a Portage and Main BL 34-44 built in 2017?
Looking put the stove under a carport with a metal roof to keep the wood dry.
Suggestions on the best way to do this? What Boot/Chimney works best?

Picked up the last few pieces to reinstall my heat exchangers after replacing the oil furnace, hope to fire up this weekend. About a week earlier than usual.

Replaced all but a couple shark bites during the summer.  Fired it up 10/20/20 and it went pretty well as the couple remaining shark bites only dripped a bit until they got warm.  The last ones are the ones that hook up to the heat exchangers so next summer I will pull them out and solder on something better.  Just need to come up some kind of a coupler so if need be I can pull the heat exchangers without cutting PEX to do it. Off to a pretty good start. :)

Roger, enjoy the warmth. I had the oil tank, furnace and oil fired hot water tank replaced this year with propane, as tank was due to be replaced according to insurance (what a scam).
So now I still have to reinstall my exchanger and related piping which am still waiting for, grrrrr. Otherwise I would probably be firing mine up as well. Stay warm.

Is it going to be permanently disconnected or used again at a later time?

I would just drain it. Circulating water will require a heat source too ($$$ to keep it heated) and if the pump fails the damage will be much greater than corrosion from sitting empty. You won't know the pump failed like you would if it was heating your house.

If the lines are still going to be attached, I would get as much water out of them as you can and then fill lines with RV antifreeze.

Yes it will be permanently disconnected, will be up for sale as soon as I can figure how to get it out of the shed, Brothers backhoe took a dump, that's how we put it place. I've got the lines to the house and pole barn disconnected. Thanks I will drain it out.

Fired up here the other day. Last few years its been one day earlier each year for some reason?

Wouldn't you know it, I fired up the Edge 550 on Tuesday when it was pouring rain, cold and raw with wind out of the northeast, today the weather is supposed to be sunny and in the low 70's.  We're expecting rain and colder temps tomorrow and Saturday (it may not make it out of the 40's on Saturday) so I do not feel I've jumped the gun on firing her up.  Roger

We have Nat gas hooked up, and I will not be using the CB, my question is, should I just drain it, or circulate the water, to prevent freezing? The only concern with draining it, would be rusting up in the inside.  Thanks
