1. Route wiring to left side of furnace.
2. Remove junction box cover.
3. Connect 120 white wire to furnace 120 white wire.
4. Connect 120 black wire to furnace 120 black wire.
5. Connect ground wire to furnace green ground wire.
After field hookups have been made, put wire connections into
furnace junction box and replace cover.
6. Connect thermostat leads to the two blue furnace thermostat leads.
: Furnace is equipped with a 120 volt AC motor. All other
NOTE
electrical component parts are supplied with power from a trans-
former inside the furnace at 24 volts AC.
: A 120 volt model can also be supplied with a 30 inch
NOTE
power cord attached from the factory supplied with a molded plug
with ground pin.
: DC units are supplied with a power switch
NOTE
which when turned OFF for servicing will remove power through the
furnace wiring. Switch must be in ON position for furnace to operate.

POWER SUPPLY
Atwood Mobile Products highly recommends the use of an electronic
(solid state) converter with clean, clear power output. This will assure
the life of the electronic controls and motor life could be extended as
much as 500% beyond typical linear converter applications.
THERMOSTAT INSTALLATION
The thermostat is very sensitive.
Locate thermostat 48˝ to 54˝ above floor on an
areas of abnormal heat or cold.
spacer between thermostat and exterior wall.
Follow manufacturer's installation instructions provided with thermo-
stat. When a thermostat is not supplied use a thermostat rated for 12
VDC or 24 VAC minimum lamp.
CONVERTIBLE GAS CONTROL

unit is supplied with two main burner orifices. One will be in place, the
other will be attached to blower housing cover. Each orifice will be
clearly marked with a drill size as shown below.

1. Unit will need to be removed if installed, if not start with step #2.
2. Remove burner cover and extended manifold.
3. Remove burner assembly from control box.
4. Remove two screws holding burner head in place.
5. Use a 7/16˝ socket to remove orifice and replace correct orifice cor-
responding to type of gas required, which corresponds to regulator
plug setting
6. Replace burner head with two screws.
7. Reinstall burner assembly. Burner assembly must seal tight against
control box.
8. Install extended manifold and apply thread sealant to threads going
into gas valve.

PROPANE GAS PRESSURE TEST
The furnace and any individual shut-off valve must be disconnected
from gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of system
at test pressures of more than 1/2 PSI.
Before furnace is connected, piping systems must be tested to be leak
free. The test must maintain air pressure of at least 6˝ of mercury or 3
PSI for at least 10 minutes.
The entire piping system must be maintained within a range of 10-14˝

: For maximum performance and reliability refer to Installation Addendum
NOTE
for manufacturer's recommendations and specifications.
Voltage greater than indicated will cause higher static readings.
Reducing the number of duct turns and stretching ducts will increase
air flow and reduce static pressure. Adding ducts or increasing dis-
charge system (hard ducting) will also reduce static pressure.
NOTE: Special tool required to take casing static pressure. Location for
Static Pressure Tap for casing is located on back of casing (top left
corner)
