Fireplace Install

I just got through installing a fireplace in my 2016 Surveyor 265rlds. It was relatively easy and only required a minor enlargement on the width of the existing cabinet under the TV. The hound will be really happy this winter!!

curious, do you have a 30 or 50 am unit? did you run a dedicated circuit and have extra room in the panel or did you power off another circuit?

Kimber45.....I have a 30 amp system, and simply plugged it into the existing receptacle that was next to the cabinet beneath the TV. It only requires a 15 amp circuit.

We are in the process of locating a fireplace and will do an install much like you have done. Curious as to what brand fireplace you used and what you dimensions were? We have had a hard time locating one that will fit our 26Ē x 19Ē space.

I purchased one on Amazon by Best Choice Products. It's advertised as a "28.5" Embedded" fireplace. I was able to make it fit into the cabinet under the TV in my unit by removing the doors, the center style between the doors, and moving the style on the left side (as you're facing it) approximately 1/2". The fireplace wasn't quite tall enough to fill the height of the opening, so I installed a spacer (which I stained beforehand) above the fireplace unit itself. If you're handy, it's really quite easy. Let me know how you make out, or if I can be of any further assistance.

JEG.....

Your installation looks better than factory.

I installed one in our Georgetown years ago, but I didnít have the real estate to install one as large as yours, but we like the ambiance and it takes the chill out if weíre on an electric site.....why use my propane?

Iím guessing all you lost was a little bit of storage.

Fireplace Install - Alternative

Here's an alternative if you don't want to do a full fireplace install. We picked this one up at a Big Lots store and put it in a couple of weeks ago. It fits perfectly. The only downsides are that it takes up a little bit of space (as opposed to losing storage), and we have to move it away from the slide-out each time we pack up. The dog loves it.

Beautiful 👍👍👍👍

But like you said, itíll be only a very few floor plans that allow for a stand alone unit versus a built in.....but it does look like it belongs.
