- Determine the best location in your RV for installation.
All of our electric units are zero clearance so you can choose the perfect viewing spot. Look for a void in a suitable cabinet with access to electricity. Many people will install these near the television, convert an existing cabinet or make use of wasted wall space.

- Place your order either online or by calling one of our helpful customer service specialists (866.966.1122)
- Cut your cabinet based on the dimensions inside of the firebox flange
The flange is generally ½" and is on the top and the sides of each electric firebox. Leave a few inches of air space inside cavity above unit to allow for air intake.
- Create a support for your firebox underneath the unit.
The support frame is most often made of wood and should allow the firebox to sit level and avoid movement while you're on the road.
- Plug the unit into a 110V outlet inside the cavity or direct wire appropriately
- Slide the firebox into the cut-out and secure
Electric fireplaces do not require any clearance from combustible material (ex. wood trim or laminate) or provision for venting, but you will need to leave a few inches of air space inside cavity above unit to allow for air intake.
- Trim the outside of firebox appropriately
Most people use material similar to their cabinet trim. Review our customer pictures for inspiration.
