Special provisions for mobile home installations:
The exhaust vent must be securely fastened to a noncombustible
portion of the mobile home structure and must not terminate
beneath the mobile home. Terminate the exhaust vent outside.
Determine vent path:
Select route that will provide straightest and most direct path
n
outdoors.
Plan installation to use fewest number of elbows and turns.
n
When using elbows or making turns, allow as much room
n
as possible.
Bend vent gradually to avoid kinking.
n
Use as few 90° turns as possible.
n
Determine vent length and elbows needed for best
drying performance:
Use following "Vent System Chart" to determine type of vent
n
material and hood combinations acceptable to use.
NOTE: Do not use vent runs longer than those specified
in "Vent System Chart." Exhaust systems longer than those
specified will:
Shorten life of dryer.
n
Reduce performance, resulting in longer drying times and
n
increased energy usage.
The "Vent System Chart" provides venting requirements that
will help achieve best drying performance.
