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. Contact 1.800.762.1142.

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 non-use, 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.

Please use protective gloves when assembling this product.

Do not force parts together as this can result in personal injury or damage to the product.

Deaths, serious injury or damage to property may occur if the above is not followed exactly.

Contact 1.800.762.1142 for assistance. Do not return to place of purchase.
