Hello,
I am looking for the owner's manual for a Shenandoah R-78LC wood/coal stove.
Also if anyone is aware of any websites for information and parts.
She's a pretty basic unit.

Thanks,
WD

R-77E matches the 78.........65 isn't even close.
Thanks for the scoop.......the 77 manual will certainly help tune this puppy up.

Yes, noticed the wood model R77-E has a shaker grate...not sure if it has fire bricks???
Best to have bricks for burning the coal.

You're right. The 78 looks like the exact same as the 77, but with Square shaker grid and fire brick.
Very utility looking. I don't think she'll be winning any beauty contests.
