Make Gas Connections

IMPORTANT: This furnace requires conversion for use with
propane. To order the correct conversion kit, see "Accessories."
1. Install the field gas supply for either the side gas pipe entry or
the bottom gas pipe entry as shown in "Side Gas Pipe Entry"
and "Bottom Gas Pipe Entry" sections.
2. Provide a sediment trap on the outside of the furnace section.
3. Install a manual gas shutoff valve in the gas line, outside the
unit in accordance with any local codes.
4. Install a test gauge connection with a ¹⁄₈ in. NPT plugged
tapping immediately upstream of the manual gas shutoff
valve as shown.
5. Connect the gas pipe to the furnace controls providing a
ground joint union as close to the controls as possible to
facilitate removal of controls and manifold. Pipe-joint
compounds suitable for use with natural and LP gas must be
used. Do not use Teflon
Side Gas Pipe Entry
Side entry is the usual method of routing the gas supply to the
unit. Use the factory provided grommet to seal the opening
around the gas pipe preventing rain and moisture from entering
the unit around the gas pipe and reduce noise.
