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 minimum discharge
requirements. Ducting in dead air space with no return air, such as
holding tank areas, does not count toward achieving minimum dis-
charge requirements.
Adjust ducting installation to obtain air rise of 100˚F-130˚F.
Flexible Ducting Systems
When designing Flexible Duct Systems:
avoid sharp bends or crushed ducts
stretch all ducts and run them directly to outlets, keeping quanti-
ty and angles of bends to a minimum
1. Remove knockout plates from desired outlets.
2. Attach a duct adapter to each opening, by inserting flange over cas-
ing, locking the 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 correct static pressure.
Hard Ducting Floor Systems
When designing Hard Ducting 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.

A flex adapter FIG 15 #26 may be used to provide more flexibility for
alignment of discharge opening on hard duct systems. This system
can be used on all models installed horizontally or vertically provid-
ing ducting from rear of furnace without using side ducts.

6. Install three duct adapters into flex adapter plate.
7. Attach flexible ducting (7-B) from furnace to flex adapter plate and
secure ducting in place.
8. Additional ducting can be used to maintain correct static pressure.
PROPANE 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.
WITH DOOR ONLY
• 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.
