Step 8 – Securing the Tank
Mount your 20 lb. cylinder to a sturdy object such as a table or post
within 3 to 4 feet of your heater when in use, this will prevent movement
or tipping of the cylinder during operation.
The clamp on the cylinder ring will attach to any round pole from 1” to
2” in diameter, or a square post from 1” to 2” square. It will also adapt to
various other shapes up to 2” wide.
Determine where to locate your 20 lb. cylinder. Be sure that it is within
2” what you are mounting it to.
Place the bracket halves around the object and insert the 2” bolts
through the open holes in one bracket and into the matching threaded
holes in the second bracket. Position bracket within 6” of the middle of
the cylinder. Finger tighten bolts.
Slide the 20 lb. cylinder into the curved portion of the bracket, making
sure strapping ends are not between cylinder and bracket. Enclose
cylinder in strap and securely tighten strap in buckle.
Using a 7/16” wrench, tighten the 2” bolts until they are secure. DO
NOT OVER TIGHTEN.
In some cases you may wish to secure your cylinder to a larger object
or a wall. It is possible to mount the bracket attached to the straps to
these surfaces by drilling matching holes and using screws and nuts or
lag screws (not provided) to secure your cylinder.
Note: Once you have read “safety first” and successfully completed
Steps 1 – 8, you are ready to begin operating your heater.

you perform the following maintenance activities on a regular basis:
Inspect the visible portion of the hose before each use of the appliance.
Inspect the entire hose assembly at least annually.
Air flow must be unobstructed. Keep controls, burner, and circulating air
passageways clean. Signs of possible blockage include:
Gas odor with extreme yellow tipping of flame.
Heater does NOT reach the desired temperature.
Heater glow is excessively uneven.
Heater makes popping noises.
Spiders and insects can nest in burner or orifices. This dangerous
condition can damage heater and render it unsafe for use. Clean burner
holes by using a heavy-duty pipe cleaner. Compressed air may help
clear away smaller particles.
Carbon deposits may create a fire hazard. Clean dome and emitter with
warm soapy water if any carbon deposits develop.
Note: In a salt-air environment (such as near an ocean), corrosion occurs
more quickly than normal. Frequently check for corroded areas and repair
them promptly.
Keep exterior surfaces clean.
Use warm soapy water for cleaning. Never use flammable or corrosive
cleaning agents.
While cleaning your unit, be sure to keep the area around the burner
and pilot assembly dry at all times. Do not submerge the control valve
assembly. If the gas control is submerged in water, do NOT use it. It
must be replaced.
TIP:
Use high-quality automobile wax to help maintain the appearance of
your heater. Apply to exterior surfaces from the pole down. Do not
apply to emitter screen or domes.
