Hi love the stoves you picked out.

I think u will find the the 118 firebox size 50% larger than the other 2.

This will effect your output and burn time.

The sidewall setbacks might throw your plans off a bit. Take a look at those specs.

Additionally you will find convective type stoves will have less setbacks than the radiants.

Joyful has a upright convective stove and morso a few as well that might fit in the setback space.

We have a morso 8142 for ambiance supplemental coziness and burn it almost every night. But it does need reloading a little bit too often with a smallish firebox. Approx 1 cu ft

Have fun choosing.

Just bought and installed a Jotul F118. This piece was left over--it was sitting in the fire box. No idea what it's for. Nor does my dealer! Ideas?

A guess would be an air slider valve, perhaps for an alternate market like Europe?

The parts manual refers to an air slider valve but offers no advice about where/how to install it. Any Black Bear users out there know the answer? Not sure what role is played by such a valve. Or if it's necessary or useful.

When we got our F400 there was a mystery part which turned out to be a doghouse cover for the air slider valve for the European market. That is why I speculated this may be a similar situation.

That’s sent with every 400. I’ve never seen the piece included with this 118.

Nor I, it's just a guess.
