Hello,
I have an Alaska Channing 2 and am trying to figure out the correct dimensions for the stove pad.

The only manual i can find seems to be for the Kast Concole, Channing 3 and the 140. In there it says the pad should extend 8 inches behind the hopper of the stove yet it says minimum clearance from the hopper to the wall is 2 inches. I'm a bit confused by this.

Is there anyone who can tell me what they did for the pad for their Channing 2?

Here is the data plate on my stove. So if I’m interpreting this correctly the pad needs to extend 8 inches from where the hopper meets the back of the stove. Also that only 2 inches is needed between the back of the hopper and the wall. So since the hopper is 10 inches deep I think the determining factor here is going to be to distance of the top vent chimney connector pipe to the wall. So I think that if I maintain the required minimum of 18 inches from the pipe to the wall I should be ok.
If my understanding of NFPA 211 is correct I should be able to get down to the 2 inches of clearance behind the stove if I add appropriate non combustible protection on the wall.

Does my understanding seem correct?
