SAFETY INFORMATION
WARNINGS
WARNING: This product contains and/or generates chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer or birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
WARNING: FIRE, BURN, INHALATION, AND EX­PLOSION HAZARD. KEEP SOLID COMBUSTIBLES, SUCH AS BUILDING MATERIALS, PAPER OR CARD­BOARD, A SAFE DISTANCE AWAY FROM THE HEATER AS RECOMMENDED BY THE INSTRUC­TIONS. NEVER USE THE HEATER IN SPACES WHICH DO OR MAY CONTAIN VOLATILE OR AIRBORNE COMBUSTIBLES, OR PRODUCTS SUCH AS GASO­LINE, SOLVENTS, PAINT THINNER, DUST PARTICLES OR UNKNOWN CHEMICALS.
WARNING: NOT FOR HOME OR RECREATIONAL VEHICLE USE.
The heater is designed for use as a construction heater in accordance with ANSI Z83.7/CGA 2.14. Other standards govern the use of fuel gases and heating products for specific uses. Your local authority can advise you about these. The primary purpose of construction heaters is to provide temporary heating of buildings under construction, alteration or repair. Properly used, the heater provides safe economical heating. Products of combustion are vented into the area being heated.
We cannot foresee every use which may be made of our heaters.
CHECK WITH YOUR LOCAL FIRE SAFETY AUTHORITY IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT HEATER USE.
Other standards govern the use of fuel gases and heat producing products for specific uses. Your local authorities can advise you about these.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: Some people are more affected by
carbon monoxide than others. Early signs of carbon monoxide poison­ing resemble the flu, with headaches, dizziness, and/or nausea. If you have these signs, the heater may not be working properly. Get fresh air at once! Check for proper ventilation and have heater serviced.
Propane Gas: Propane gas is odorless. An odor-making agent is
added to propane gas. The odor helps you detect a propane gas leak. However, the odor added to propane gas may fade. Propane gas may be present even though no odor exists.
Make certain you read and understand all warnings. Keep this manual for reference. It is your guide to safe and proper operation of this heater.
• Install and use heater with care. Follow all local ordinances and codes. In the absence of local ordinances and codes, refer to the
Standard for Storage and Handling of Liquefied Petr oleum Gas,
ANSI/NFPA 58 and the Natural Gas Installation Code, CAN/ CGA B149.2. This instructs on the safe storage and handling of
propane gases.

• Keep heater away from strong drafts, wind, water spray , rain, or dripping water.
• Do not use heater in occupied dwellings or in living or sleeping quarters.
• Do not use heater in a basement or below ground level. Propane gas is heavier than air. If a leak occurs, propane gas may sink to the lowest possible level.
• Keep appliance area clear and free from combustible materials, gaso­line, paint thinner, and other flammable vapors and liquids. Dust is combustible. Do not use heater in areas with high dust content.
• Minimum heater clearances from combustibles: Sides: 3 feet, Top: 6 feet.

UNPACKING
1. Remove all packing items applied to heater for shipment. Keep plastic cover caps (attached to valve inlet and hose/regulator assembly) for storage.
2. Remove all items from carton.
3. Check all items for shipping damage. If heater is damaged, promptly inform dealer where you bought heater.
PROPANE SUPPLY
You must provide propane gas and propane tank(s). Use this heater only with a propane vapor withdrawal supply
system. See Chapter 5 of the Standard for Storage and Handling of Liquefied Petroleum Gas, ANSI/NFPA 58 and/or CAN/CGA B149.2. Your local library or fire department will have this booklet.
This heater will operate with a 20-pound propane tank. However, you can only operate it in the LOW position during mildly cool weather. At higher heat settings or during colder weather, you must use larger tanks.
The amount of propane gas ready for use from propane tanks varies. Two factors decide this amount.
1. The amount of propane gas in tank(s)
2. The temperature of tank(s) The chart below shows the minimum number of 100-pound tanks
needed to run the heater. Connect tanks together with a manifold.

Less gas is vaporized at lower temperatures. Your local propane gas dealer will help you select the proper supply system.
VENTILATION
WARNING: Provide at least a 2.5 square foot opening of fresh, outside air while running heater. If proper fresh, outside air ventilation is not provided, carbon monoxide poisoning can occur. Provide proper fresh, outside air ventilation before running heater.
THEORY OF OPERATION
The Fuel System: The hose/regulator assembly attaches to the
propane gas supply. This provides fuel to the heater.
The Ignition System: The piezo ignitor lights main burner. The Automatic Control System: This system causes the heater to
shut down if the flame goes out.

section, page 2. They are needed to safely operate this heater. Follow all local codes when using this heater.
WARNING: Test all gas piping and connections for leaks after installation or servicing. Never use an open flame to check for a leak. Apply a mixture of liquid soap and water to all joints. Bubbles forming show a leak. Correct all leaks at once.
1. Provide propane supply system (see Propane Supply, page 3).
2. Connect fuel gas fitting on hose/regulator assembly to pro­pane tank(s). Turn fuel gas fitting counterclockwise into threads on tank. Tighten firmly using a wrench.
IMPORTANT:
Tighten regulator with vent pointing down. Pointing vent down pro­tects regulator from weather damage.
3. Connect hose to the valve inlet. Tighten firmly using a wrench. You must use the regulator supplied with heater even if pro­pane tank has one.
4. Open propane supply valve on propane tank(s) slowly.
Note:
If not opened slowly , excess-flow check valve on propane tank may stop gas flow. If this happens, you may hear a click inside the regulator assembly, this is the check valve closing. To re­set the excess flow check valve, close propane supply valve and open again slowly.
5. Check all connections for leaks. Apply mixture of liquid soap and water to gas joints. Bubbles forming show a leak that must be corrected.
6. Close propane supply valve.
