2015 FR Wildwood Adding a Electric fireplace

Has anyone seen or know if I can add a electric fireplace inside a cabinet more for looks when lit versus using for heat

Sure why not. If you have the will there is always a way. Most electric fireplaces have a zero clearance needed for install.

Gee jyr I have in my Wildwood 337BAR an electric fireplace.It states in the manual that came in our Forest River package it must be connected to a 3 prong 120V properly grounded outlet,a 15 amp circuit breaker.The cabinet cut-out looks to be 21 7/8 H x 26 1/2 W x 6 1/2 d.This model from Forest River is a vendor for assembly line so there is a good chance if their was a option on your unit to include a fireplace the wiring harness may be or the outlet may be back behind the wall.This model is manufactured by Greystone and the model number is WF2613L,it comes with 4 buttons.1)Flame brightness 2)heater setting with 7 temp setting's 95,90,85,80,75,70,65. 3)Timer so that it will remain on till the timer runs out inwhich a cool down will occur followed by a shut down by it self.Greystone's website may have this installation manual,or WAY Interglobal Network,they are out of Hart,Indiana.Just down the road from FR assembly plant.Phone 574-971-4490.Hope this helps in that cozy fireplace setting you are looking for.

We added the Greystone to our 3025W. However, we paid our dealership to install due to needing to reconfigure the cabinet. They used a picture we provided and charged us three hours labor after some negotiation. Looks good and blows out heat.

Look in amazon. There's one on there for around $135. Has good reviews. Plugs in. Been thinking about putting one in my surveyor.

Just a heads up I am in process of adding one to my 5er.
I have it then place and just removed the doors this past weekend.
I need to add some flooring to raise it up to bottom of the cabinet level and then close in the top and side. I had already removed the shelving and now the doors. Had to cut a hole intot he side wall to reach an outlet. IT has the NEW safe plug that if it detects heat it shuts down. Ordered if off Amazon and got a great buy. Had been looking at them for two weeks. PUT it on my wish list and low and behold it came up day more than half off. I ordered right then. The next day back to full price?? Not sure what happened BUT i was glad. I had it on Saturday morning to check to it out. I had run the furnace to bust the cold. (camper is parked under RVport beside my house with full hookups). So this helps with working on/in it. I am down to the trim and the raised floor and then block it in to keep it from moving around. Still not sure what I will do there but I have a plan..
good luck
randy
