Ducting systems can include any combination of discharge openings, as
long as static pressure and minimum discharge area requirements are met.

BUILDING MATERIALS
• Each 4-inch duct opening provides 12 in
an extra 12 in
2
of non closeable duct discharge area for each
closeable register used.
• Use of 2˝ ducts does not count toward achieving min. discharge req.
Ducting in dead air space with no return air, such as holding tank
areas, does not count toward achieving min. discharge requirements.
• Adjust ducting installation to obtain air rise of 100˚F - 130˚F.
Flexible Ducting System
When designing Flexible Duct Systems:
• avoid sharp bends or crushed ducts
• stretch all ducts and run them directly to outlets, keeping quantity
and angles of bends to a minimum
1. Remove knockout plates from desired outlets.
2. Attach duct adapter to each opening, by inserting flange over casing,
locking tab into casing slot and turning adapter 90˚.
3. Attach and secure

4. Run ducts to desired location within RV, secure to registers.
5. Additional ducting may be needed to maintain static pressure.
Hard Ducting Floor System
When designing Hard Duct Systems:
• undersize ducting will cause high temperature limiting
• oversize ducting will cause inadequate air flow from registers
• when hard ducting is 1-1/2˝ in depth, an additional flex duct may be
needed to maintain installation static requirements
install floor registers within 2 feet of return air openings.

OPTIONAL INSTALLATION
BOTTOM DISCHARGE
1. Remove bottom discharge cover plate. This ducting option must
be connected to a ducting system. FIG 12 (parts breakdown) #40 -

GAS CONNECTION
1. Connect gas line to brass fitting on right side of furnace. Be sure all
male pipe threads, other than flare fittings, are treated with a sealing
compound resistant to the action of propane (LP) gas.
sealing compound on flare fittings.
• Remove slide plate (1-E) and gas inlet plug (1-F) from furnace.
• Insert gas line (1-G) through gas inlet plug (
• Connect gas line through gas inlet plug inside furnace casing
immediately ahead of gas control valve.
• A 1/8˝ N.P.T. plug is accessible for test gauge connection on gas
valve assembly.
2. A 3/8˝ flared fitting connection is provided at gas control valve inlet
for gas supply connection to furnace. The gas supply line of the fur-
nace must be of adequate size to provide 11˝ W.C. gas pressure.
This pressure must be maintained under maximum flow conditions
with all gas appliances in operation.
3. Use two wrenches to hold brass fitting and flare nut when tightening
gas line to brass fitting.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE
• Label all wires before disconnecting for service. Wiring errors can
cause improper and dangerous operation.
Verify proper operation after servicing.
• Disconnect electrical power before servicing.

VOLT DC MODELS
Route 12 volt DC and thermostat leads to left side of control box. Use
a minimum of 18 GA wire to minimize voltage drop. The furnace must
be installed so electrical components are protected from water. To
make electrical connections: see
1. Route wiring to left side of furnace.
2. Connect red wire to positive side of power supply.
3. Connect yellow wire to grounded side of power supply.
4. Connect blue wire marked positive thermostat to + side wire of
thermostat using 22-18 GA stranded wire.

5. Connect the other blue wire to the other thermostat lead using
.750˝
minimum 22-18 GA stranded wire.
For best furnace performance when power supply is from a converter
equipped with a charging port, wire the converter to furnace parallel
with battery. This provides consistent voltage to furnace, increasing
component life, filtering power surges and AC spikes.
