    This is in the PM2000 owners manual it goes over vertical and horizontal venting and then has this. Is this implying you only need the baffles if attaching to an existing chimney? I currently have the baffles installed and I have 4pvl venting, 18" horizontal and 8 feet vertical. Should I...

    Hearthstone Mansfield baffle support position

    I can't get my baffle support to sit upright, as the parts dialogue displays. As my photos 1-3 show, it flops down flat, essentially enveloping my front secondary tube.
