GENERAL FURNACE LOCATION AND INSTALLATIONS
All models can be installed in either a horizontal or vertical mounting
position Horizontal installs must have the gas line positioned on top,
vertical installs must have the vent located at floor level and gas line on
the right side.
Always install furnace exhaust system through an exterior wall.
DO NOT install furnace near tilt-out rooms, slide-outs, doors or other
projection that could obstruct furnace exhaust.
Locate furnace near midpoint of coach for single furnace applications.
Installation must provide accessibility if any repairs are necessary to
the furnace. Failure to meet this requirement will create additional labor
costs that will be the responsibility of the installer.
DO NOT install vent in areas where projection or door openings come
within 6" of vent opening.
DO NOT install furnace in an area where wires, pipes or other objects
will interfere with installation or operation of furnace.
DO NOT install furnace on material that restricts return air, such as
directly on carpet, or soft material (like vinyl). If you must install furnace
on carpet or soft material, install furnace on cleats, or on a wood or
metal panel extending the full width and depth of furnace plus
minimum clearance to combustibles.
DO NOT use petroleum or citrus type cleaner on plastic parts, as
damage may occur.
NOTE: The exhaust temperature of this furnace could discolor or warp
some materials. You should verify that the material used on the coach
door, panel, or cover will not discolor or warp from the exhaust
temperature whenever any door, panel, or cover is in the open

through casing legs to floor. Units are secured by door or vent systems
through the coach sidewall.
Attach flexible ducting over duct adapters and secure. All flex ducting
requires rating of 200°F.
Run ducting to locations keeping bends and excess ducting to a
minimum and secure to registers.
