VENTING INSTALLATION
installation planning
There are two basic types of direct-vent installation:
• Vertical Termination
• Horizontal Termination
It is important to select the proper length of vent pipe for
the type of termination you choose. It is also important
to note the wall thickness.
WARNING
Direct Vent Gas Fireplace for Mobile Homes
Never run the vent pipe down. This may cause
excessive temperatures which could cause a
fire.
For vertical termination
Measure the distance from the fireplace floor to the ceiling. Add the ceiling thickness, the vertical
rise in an attic or second story, and allow for sufficient vent height above the roof line.
NOTE: You may use two 45° elbows in place of a 90° elbow. You must follow rise to run
ratios when using 45° elbows. The appliance is approved for use with three 90° elbows
maximum or a combination of 90° and 45° elbows up to a maximum of 270°.
For two-story applications, firestops are required at each floor level. If an offset is needed in the
attic, additional pipe and elbows will be required.
You may use a chase with a vent termination with exposed pipe on the exterior of the house.
See Installing Vent System in a Chase below. If pipe is enclosed in chase, it is not exposed.
It is very important that the venting system maintain its balance between the combustion air
intake and the flue gas exhaust. Certain limitations apply to vent configurations and must be
strictly followed.
for horizontal termination
Select the amount of vertical rise desired. All horizontal run of venting must have 1/4" rise for
every 12" of run towards the termination.
You may use up to three 90° elbows in this vent configuration. Refer to Horizontal Terminations
on Page 13.
Installing a vent system in an outside chase
WARNING
12
Treatment of firestops and construction of
the chase may vary from building type to
building type. These instructions are not
substitutes for the requirements of local
building codes. You must follow all local
building codes.
NOTICE
WARNING
A chase is a vertical boxlike structure built to enclose venting that runs along the outside of a
building. A chase is required for such venting.
When installing in a chase, you should
insulate the chase as you would the outside
walls of your home. This is especially
important in cold climates. Insulation
should be considered a combustible
material. Maintain proper clearances to all
combustible materials.
Always maintain minimum clearances around vent systems. The minimum clearance to
combustibles for horizontal vent pipe are 3” at the top and 1” at the sides and bottom
of the vent system until the pipe penetrates the nearest vertical wall (1” required). A
1” minimum clearance all around the pipe must be maintained at outside wall and on
vertical runs. Do not pack the open air spaces with insulation or other materials. This
could cause high temperatures and may present a fire hazard.
*Unless the vertical run is 7Z\x feet or higher (top vent units only), the clearances for the
horizontal run is 1” at the top.

When using twist lock pipe it is not necessary to use
sealant on the joints. The only areas of the venting
system that need to be sealed with high temperature silicone sealant are the sliding joints of any telescopic vent
section used in the system.
To join twist lock pipes together, simply align the beads of
the male end with the grooves of the female end, twisting
the pipe until the flange on the female end contacts external flange on the male end. It is recommended that you
secure the joints with three (3) sheet metal screws, however, this is not mandatory with twist lock pipe. Figure 14
To make it easier to assembly the joints, we suggest putting a lubricant (Vaseline or similar) on the male end of the
twist lock pipe prior to assembly.

of the vent system.
1. Determine the height of the center of the horizontal
vent pipe exiting through the outer wall. Using this dimension on the Sidewall Vent Graph, Figure 15, locate
the point intersecting with the slanted graph line.
2. From the point of this intersection, draw a vertical line
to the bottom of the graph.
3. Select the indicated dimension, and position the fireplace in accordance with same.
EXAMPLE A:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the unit is 11’ (3.4
m) the horizontal run to the face of the outer wall must not
exceed 14’ (4.3 m).
EXAMPLE B:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the unit is 7’ (2.1

Installation Instructions
Important Notice: The following instructions illustrate individual steps of assembly. However in most cases the
complete vent system can be assembled together on the
ground first, then lifted onto the roof as one component.
Feed the bottom of the flex vent through the roof opening
and lower vent down to the fireplace. Cut off extra flex
vent not needed and secure the vent connections to the
fireplace flue and inlet collar as directed in the fireplace
instruction manual.
Begin the assembly of the vent system by locating and
installing the adjustable firestop/insulation shield assembly with screws or nails into the ceiling joist area above
the fireplace. Secure the flex flue and outer flex with band
clamps to the fireplace flue and inlet connections.
17
VENTING INSTALLATION
Direct Vent Gas Fireplace for Mobile Homes
Note: The flex vent system includes spring spacers
around the flue at intervals of approximately 1 foot apart.
These springs are not to be removed, but are necessary
for proper centering of the flue system.
Assemble the roof support components as shown in Figures 23 and 24.
1. Attach the adjustable “L” shaped roof brackets to the
vent support band using 1/2” carriage bolts, nuts and
lock washers. The heads of the carriage bolts should
be to the inside of the support collar band. Locate the
roof brackets over the bolt using any of the three hole
locations provided in the brackets.
Depending upon your installation, the extra holes are
provided to raise or lower the roof support assembly as
needed within the roof framing and flashing area.
The lock washers and nuts should be installed and
tightened with moderate torque. Note: Even after
tightening, the support band will pivot as needed.
Install the (2) 1/4 - 20 x 1Z\v” long bolts through the end
tabs on the support collar band. Install the nuts with
just two or three threads.
2. The roof opening must be large enough to accommodate the roof support assembly and also maintain a
minimum 1” air space clearance to combustibles from
the 7” dia. Vent pipe.
Figure 23
The width of the opening should be a minimum of 10”
to allow the carriage bolts of the roof support assembly
to clear the roof framing.
The height of the roof opening cutout will vary depending upon roof pitch angle and blocking methods of the
opening.
3. Depending upon the installation and the amount of
space you have to work in, the 7” dia. x 24” long vent
pipe can be installed into the roof support collar before
or after securing the roof support assembly to the roof
decking.
Secure the roof support assembly to the roof with nails
or screws any time prior to placing the roof flashing.

Since it is very important that the venting system
maintain its balance between the combustion air intake and the flue gas exhaust, certain limitations as
to vent configurations apply and must be strictly adhered to.
The Vent Graph, showing the relationship between vertical and horizontal side wall venting, will help to determine
the various dimensions allowable.
Flex Section
Appliance Collars
Minimum clearance between vent pipes and combustible materials is 3" (76 mm) on top, and 1" (25 mm) on
the bottom and sides unless otherwise noted.
When vent termination exits through foundations less
than 20” (508 mm) below siding outcrop, the vent pipe
must flush up with the siding.
It is best to locate the fireplace in such a way that minimizes the number of offsets and horizontal vent length.

When installing the appliance as a rear vent unit, the
90° or 45° Transition Elbow attached directly to the
rear of the unit is NOT INCLUDED in the following criteria and calculations, and unless specifically mentioned should be ignored when calculating venting
layouts.
• The maximum number of 90° elbows per side wall installation is three (3). Figure 38
• If a 90° elbow is fitted directly on top of the fireplace
flange the maximum horizontal vent run before the termination or a vertical rise is 36” (914 mm). Figure 39
• If a 90° elbow is used in the horizontal vent run (level
height maintained) the horizontal vent length is reduced by 36” (914 mm). Figures 39 & 40. This does
not apply if the 90° elbows are used to increase or
redirect a vertical rise. Figure 38

Step 7
Guide the vent terminations 4” and 7” collard into their
respective vent pipes. Double check that the vent pipes
overlap the collars by 2” (51 mm). Secure the termination to the wall with screws provided and caulk around
the wall plate to weatherproof. As an alternative to screwing the termination directly to the wall, you may also use
expanding plugs or an approved exterior construction adhesive. You may also attach the termination with screws
through the inner body into the 4” vent pipe, however for
this method, you must extend the 4” pipe approximately
6” (152 mm) beyond the outer face of the wall.
Support horizontal pipes every 36” (914 mm)
with metal pipe straps.
Step 4
Install the 4” (102 mm) flex vent pipe to the appliance collar as described on Page 14. Secure the end with the first
spring 6C\v” (172 mm) from the flex pipe end to the unit.
Step 5
Slide the 7” (178 mm) flex vent pipe over the 4” flex vent
pipe and secure the 7” collar as described on Page 14.
Step 6
Bend the flex pipe horizontal so the bottom of the horizontal pipe measure 6Z\x” (165 mm) from the top of the unit
immediately after the 90° formation. Figure 47. Be sure to
follow the 1/2” (13 mm) rise in a 12” (305 mm) horizontal
run rule.
Step 7
Vertical Sidewall installation flex vent pipe
Install the 4” flex then 7” flex to the termination.

When installing the spacer springs around the 4” pipe,
stretch the spring to approximately 15” (381 mm), wrap
the spring around the pipe and interlock the ends of the
spacer spring approximately 2” (51 mm). Measure 6C\v”
(172 mm) from the end of the pipe. Place the next spring
5” (127 mm) from the previously installed spring. Place

FIREPLACE INSTALLATION
Direct Vent Gas Fireplace for Mobile Homes
check gas type
Use proper gas type for the fireplace you are installing. If you have conflicting gas type, do not install
fireplace. See dealer where you purchased the fireplace for proper fireplace for your gas type or
conversion kit.
A qualified installer or service person must
connect appliance to gas supply. Follow
all local codes.
CAUTION
WARNING
Install gas piping to fireplace / burner system location
For propane/LP units, never connect fireplace
directly to the propane/LP supply. This
burner system requires an external regulator
(not supplied). Install the external regulator
between the burner system and propane/LP
supply.
installation items needed
Before installing fireplace and burner system, make sure you have the items listed below.
• External regulator • Piping (check local codes)
• Test gauge connection*
• Tee joint
• Sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)
(supplied by installer)
• Sediment trap (recommended)
• Equipment shutoff valve*
• Pipe wrench
• approved flexible gas line with gas connector (if allowed by local codes — not provided)
* A CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve with 1/8" NPT tap is an acceptable alternative to test gauge
connection. Purchase the CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve from your dealer.
External
Regulator
100 lb. (min)
Propane/LP
Supply Tank
Vent Pointing
Down
CAUTION
For propane/LP connections only, the installer must supply an external regulator. The external regulator will reduce
incoming gas pressure. You must reduce incoming gas pressure to between 11 and 13 inches of water. If you do not
reduce incoming gas pressure, burner system regulator damage could occur. Install external regulator with the vent
pointing down as shown in Figure 48. Pointing the vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.
Use only new black iron or steel pipe. Internally
tinned copper or copper tubing can be used
per National Fuel Code, Section 2.6.3, providing
gas meets hydrogen sulfide limits, and where
permitted by local codes. Gas piping system
must be sized to provide minimum inlet
pressure (listed on data plate) at the maximum
flow rate (BTU/hr). Undue pressure loss will
occur if the pipe is too small.
When using copper of flex connectors use only fittings
approved for gas connections. The gas control inlet is
3/8" NPT.

WARNING
FIREPLACE INSTALLATION
A manual shutoff valve must be installed
upstream of the appliance. Union tee and
plugged 1/8” NPT pressure tapping point
should be installed upstream of the appliance.
Figure 40
NOTE : The gas line connection may be made using 1/2" rigid tubing or an approved flex connector.
Since some municipalities have additional local codes it is always best to consult your local
authorities and the current edition of the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI.Z223.1, NFPA54. In Canada
CSA-B149 (1 or 2) Installation Code.
A listed manual shutoff valve must be installed upstream of the appliance. Union tee and plugged 1/8"
NPT pressure tapping point should be installed upstream of the appliance. Figure 49
CAUTION
IMPORTANT: Install main gas valve (equipment shutoff valve) in an accessible location. The main
gas valve is for turning on or shutting off the gas to the
fireplace.
Check your building codes for any special requirements
for locating equipment shutoff valve to fireplaces.
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male threads. This will
prevent excess sealant from going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe could result in clogged burner system valves.
Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant to liquid
petroleum (LP) gas.
We recommend that you install a sediment trap/drip leg in supply line as shown in Figure 49. Locate
sediment trap/drip leg where it is within reach for cleaning. Install in piping system between fuel supply
and burner system. Locate sediment trap/drip leg where trapped matter is not likely to freeze. A sediment
trap collects moisture and contaminants and keeps them from going into the burner system gas controls.
If sediment trap/drip leg is not installed or is installed wrong, burner system may not run properly.

wire. If burner comes on, replace defective switch.
If the switch is OK, repeat the same procedure on
remote control switch. If burner comes on, replace
remote control.
Place jumper wire across wire at gas valves (terminals
marked TH and TP/TH). If burner comes on, wires are
faulty or connections are bad. Replace wire.
B.If pilot flame is not close enough to the thermopile,
adjust pilot flame.
C.Check thermopile wire connections to make sure
all are tight and that the thermopile is fully inserted
into pilot assembly. Check thermopile with a millivolt
meter. Connect leads to TP and TP/TH terminals on
the control valve. If meter reading is below 325 mV,
