Just bought this stove. Got the exhaust hooked up easily. Went to hook up the OAK pipe and found the side panel almost impossible to remove. It fits so tight I had to use a pry bar to remove it, and now it will not go back on. I followed the directions, watched the videos, this is not my first stove and I am very mechanically inclined. I tried for 2 hours so far and just gave up. Now the finish on my stove looks like crap from scratches trying to put it back on. Looks like I'm going to have to bend it to get it to fit properly. What the heck?
