2. Extinguish any open flame.
3. If odor continues, immediately call your gas supplier or your fire
department.
WARNING
FOR YOUR SAFETY
1. Do not store spare LP cylinder within 10 feet (3.05 m) of this appliance.
2. Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids
within 25 feet (7.62 m) of this or any other appliance.
3. An LP cylinder not connected for use shall not be stored in the vicinity
of this or any other appliance.
DANGER: Failure to follow the dangers, warning and cautions in this manual may result in serious bodily injury or death, or in a fire or an explosion
causing damage to property.
WARNING:
This heater is for outdoor use only, and shall not be used in a building,
garage, or any other enclosed area.
Always maintain at least 36” clearance (top), and 24” clearance (side)
from combustible materials.
This heater is for use with liquid propane (LP) gas only. The conversion
to or attempted use of natural gas in this LP gas heater is dangerous
and will void your warranty.
LP gas Characteristics:
a. LP gas is flammable and hazardous if handled improperly. Become
aware of the characteristics before using any LP gas product.
b. LP gas is explosive under pressure, heavier than air, and settles and
pools in low areas.
c. LP gas in its natural state has no odor. For your safety, an odorant is
added that smells like rotten cabbage.
d. Contact with LP gas can cause freeze burns to skin.
LP gas tank needed to operate. Only tanks marked “propane” may be
used.
The LP gas supply tank must be constructed and marked in accordance
with the Specifications for LP gas Cylinders of the U.S. Department of
Transportation (DOT) or the National Standard of Canada, CAN/CSAB339, Cylinders, Spheres and Tubes for the Transportation of Dangerous
Goods; and Commission.
LP gas tank must be arranged for vapor withdrawal.
The LP gas tank must have a listed overfilling prevention device (OPD).
Only use 20-pound cylinders equipped with a cylinder connection device
compatible with the connection for outdoor cooking appliances.
The LP gas tank must have a tank collar to protect the tank valve.
Never use an LP gas tank with a damaged body, valve, collar, or footing.
Dented or rusted LP gas tanks may be hazardous and should be
checked by your LP gas supplier prior to use.
The LP gas tank should not be dropped or handled roughly.
Tanks must be stored outdoors out of the reach of children and must
not be stored in a building, garage, or any other enclosed area. Your
tank must never be stored where temperatures can reach over 125°F.
Never keep a filled LP gas tank in a hot car or car trunk. Heat will cause
the gas pressure to increase, which may open the relief valve and allow
gas to escape.
Do not store a spare LP gas tank under or near this appliance.
Never fill the tank beyond 80 percent full.
Never attempt to attach this heater to the self-contained LP gas system
of a camper trailer, motor home, or house.
The use of alcohol, or prescription or non-prescription drugs may
impair the consumer’s ability to properly assemble or safely operate the
appliance.
Your heater has been checked at all factory connections for leaks.
Recheck all connections, as movement in shipping can loosen
connections.
Check for leaks even if your unit was assembled for you by someone
else.
Do not operate if gas leak is present. Gas leaks may cause a fire or
explosion.
You must follow all leak-checking procedures before operating. To
prevent fire or explosion hazard when testing for a leak:
a. Always perform leak test before lighting the heater and each time the
tank is connected for use.
b. No smoking. Do not use or permit sources of ignition in the area
while conducting a leak test.
c. Conduct the leak test outdoors in a well-ventilated area.
d. Do not use matches, lighters, or a flame to check for leaks.
e. Do not use heater until any and all leaks are corrected.
If you are unable to stop a leak, disconnect the LP gas supply. Call a
gas appliance serviceman or your local LP gas supplier.
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable liquids or vapors within
25 feet (7.62 m) of this appliance.
Do not use in an explosive atmosphere. Keep heater area clear and free
from combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and
liquids.
Keep all combustible items and surfaces away from the heater at all
times. DO NOT use this heater or any gas product under any overhead or
near any unprotected combustible constructions.
Combustion of propane creates carbon monoxide, which, when used in
enclosed areas, can kill you.
It is essential to keep the heater’s valve compartment, burners, and
circulating air passages clean. Inspect heater before each use.
Installation and repair should be done by a qualified service person.
Do not alter heater in any manner.
Do not use the heater unless it is COMPLETELY assembled and all parts
are securely fastened and tightened.
This heater should be thoroughly inspected before each use. Clean and
inspect the hose before each use of the appliance. If there is evidence
of abrasion, wear, cuts, or leaks, the hose must be replaced prior to the
appliance being put into operation.
Use only the regulator and hose assembly provided. The replacement
regulator and hose assembly shall be that specified by the
manufacturer.
Inspect heater before each use. If a damaged part is detected, do not
operate until an original equipment replacement part has been properly
installed.
Use only Blue Rhino Global Sourcing, Inc. factory authorized parts. The
use of any part that is not factory authorized can be dangerous. This
will also void your warranty.
Dome and burner are extremely hot to the touch during operation. Never
touch the dome or burner while the heater is operating. Wait for unit to
cool down (approximately 45 minutes) after use.
During operation, do not touch burner assembly. The surface of heater’s
emitter can reach temperatures approaching 1600ºF.
Do not install or use in or on boats or recreational vehicles.
Do not use heater in winds that exceed 10 m.p.h..
Unit will operate at reduced efficiency below 40ºF (5ºC).
Do not leave a lit heater unattended, especially keep children and pets
away from heater at all times.
Always use extreme caution when near heater. Alert both children and
adults to the hazards of high temperatures, especially to avoid burns or
clothing catching fire.
Do not attempt to move heater when in use. Allow the heater to cool
before moving or storing.
Storage of heater indoors is permissible only if the tank is disconnected,
removed from the heater and properly stored outdoors.
Do not attempt to disconnect the gas regulator from the tank or any gas
fitting while the heater is in use.
Always place your heater on a hard, level surface.
Use extreme caution on wooden decks.
Move gas hoses as far away as possible from hot surfaces.
Keep all electrical cords away from a hot heater.
Do not use heater for indoor cooking or heating. TOXIC fumes can
accumulate and cause asphyxiation.
Keep sprinklers and other water sources away from burner and
controls.
Do not hang clothing or other flammable materials either on or near
heater.
Always allow heater to cool before attempting service.
Any guard or other protective device removed for servicing the heater
must be replaced prior to operating the heater.
Certain materials or items, when stored under heater, will be subjected
to radiant heat and could be seriously damaged.
After a period of storage and/or nonuse, check for leaks, burner
obstructions and inspect for any abrasion, wear, cuts to the hose.
If at any time you are unable to light burner and smell gas, wait 5
minutes to allow gas to dissipate before attempting to light heater.
Failure to not wait 5 minutes to allow the gas to clear if the heater does
not light, may result in an explosive flame-up.
Be careful when attempting to manually ignite this heater. Holding in
the control knob for more than 10 seconds before igniting the gas will
cause a ball of flame upon ignition.
Avoid inhaling fumes emitted from the heater’s first use. Smoke and
odor from the burning of oils used in manufacturing will appear. Both
smoke and odor will dissipate after approximately 30 minutes. The
heater should NOT produce thick black smoke.
If heater is not in use, the gas must be turned off at the supply tank.
Do not use this appliance without reading “Operating Instructions” in
this manual.
Deaths, serious injury or damage to property may occur if the above is
not followed exactly.

exterior surfaces from the pole down. Do not apply to emitter screen or domes.
