so just read the stickie on clearances and decided to go check mine. right side of stove is 23 inches, left side 18 and back 12. the only wall i'm concerned about is the right side where it's only sheetrock and not brick. the infered said the sheetrock wall about even with top of stove was 190*! i dont think i could keep my hand on it long! its hot! stove top temp is 450 and about halfway through the burn(3 hours most) stove is a POS wood goblin. about to pull the trigger on a BK princess tomorrow. should i be worried? i've been using this stove for the first season i moved in, replaced with a dutchwest everburn, that died, replaced with the original stove last winter, burned a cord through it(went to florida) now were in the shoulder season and i'm a little worried. should i stop burning? am i worring for nothing?
