Asked Questions:

Made USA Back to Riley Stoves

Pellet Stove & Altitude
It has come to our attention from our customers that our pellet stoves do not work properly above 8,000 feet in altitude. We have determined the problem to be not enough oxygen in the air at that altitude. The pellet burning only stoves cannot draw enough oxygen to make them work; the wood / pellet stove do a little better but still have a problem when you reach a certain altitude. Therefore Riley Stoves does not recommend using their pellet burning stoves above this altitude. We recommend that if you camp a lot around this altitude and want a pellet stove that you purchase a wood / pellet combination so that if your pellet stove does not burn properly at your higher camp sites you will have the option to burn wood to solve the problem. There is no problem in burning wood at any altitude. Pellets however need lots of draft and oxygen to burn properly.

How much heat does a pellet stove put out???
We do not have the capability to measure BTU's, however we can put a thermometer on the surface of our stoves. A Wrangler wood / pellet stove burning pellets will produce a surface temperature of 1180 degrees at 3800 feet altitude; of course as with any stove the higher you go the less heat your stove will produce because there is less oxygen.

Do Not let the water tank Ever run dry!!!!!!!
Do Not set Water Tank on top or hang on side with out Water in it. The caulking will dry out and result in a leaky water tank.
Note: This caulking is USDA approved for food contact.
  • Convenices: Boiling water kills micro organisms.
  • Warm wash water for hands and dishes.
  • Water Tank is great for hot water for cocoa, tea or coffee.

    Patented Air-Cooled Bottom: does not require sand to protect the bottom.

    Oven Thermometer: do not rely on what it says!!! The inside temperature will be 200 degrees hotter than shown on the thermometer. The door of the Chimney Ovens are doubled to prevent warping.

    Arrange kindling and wood source inside the stove box, light a fire, close the door, open the draft, put cooking pots / pans directly on the stove top and enjoy your Riley Stove!!!

    Riley Pellet stoves operates without the restrictions of conventional pellet stoves, they do not require electricity to operate. The burner unit is gravity fed and has an effective design that allows it to generate its own air flow. Besides being practical, these features make it ideal for an emergency heat source during power outages or for emergency services operations.

  • All tent pellet stoves have an air intake adjustment on door.
  • Adjust heat by adjusting pellet flow lever.
  • Pellet burner slides in with clip fastener. Slide door covers pellet burner hole when pellet burner is not used.
  • One minute conversion to a wood burning stove by removing burner.
  • Spark arrestor and damper should not be used on a stove burning pellets.
  • When burning pellets, no spark arrestor is required as there are no sparks.
  • Riley pellet stoves provide consistent even heat, it is every camp cook's dream. The stove will provide up to 12-14 hours of even heat on a 40 lb sack of pellets.
  • Hopper holds approximately 20 lbs of pellets. Normal burn time is 6-8 hours. Want it to burn longer just add more pipe!!!
  • Hopper Size: Wrangler and Trailboss 24" High X 8" Diameter. Dude and City Slicker 2" High and 7" diameter
  • Pellet burner allows ash to fall into stove. Good pellets makes about 2 cups of ash per pellet bag.
  • Pellet burner is approximately 2" above bottom of stove to avoid quick ash buildup on the burner.
  • Pellet flow can be cut off entirely with pellet flow lever.
  • The Wrangler and Trail Boss will burn either pellets or wood. You do not need a damper for the pellet stoves as they need all the air they can get. A damper is recommended if you are going to use wood.

    Riley Stove has DOUBLE walls and DOUBLE bottoms and is a high quality lightweight stove.

    1. Clean burner once a day or every other day.
    2. Use high quality premium pellets as they work best. Most premium pellets are made from hardwood and burn cleaner, longer and hotter in tent pellet stoves.
    3. Insure that your stove pipe extends past tent ridge to provide a good draft.
    4. When burning pellets keep tent pellet stove door air input totally closed.

    Riley Pellet Stove is the perfect answer for any person spending time in a hunting camp, calving/lambing shed, on cold weather excursions to a remote cabin or for operating in an area low in natural fuels. Canvas tent pellet stove is economical and easy to use. The Riley is a non electric pellet stove. This is a tried and proved non electric pellet stove that is guaranteed to work properly.
