Your question might be better served in the sub forum of whatever rig you have, when youíre asking about fitting it in your rig.

Not everyone (including myself) know what a 268RKS is.

I guess of someone doesn’t know what a 268RKS is, they haven’t added a fireplace to one.

Apparently the OP has a 2018 Vibe 268RKS.
Unfortunately they haven't put that information in their profile or signature.
Moved thread from the Modifications and Updates section to the Vibe sub-forum since the OP is asking for model-specific information.

I have the same model. Mine came with a fireplace. Mine is also a 30 amp. Why are you converting to 50 amp?
I would think the installation would be pretty much straight forward. Fuse and breaker panel should be adjacent to point of install and I assume it would come with install instructions. I would add to makes sure the fireplace insert is securely fastened to the fake mantle. I can't figure out, though I haven't spent much time, how to keep mine from creeping out while rolling down the road.
Post pics of opened breaker panel and location where you intend to mount the fp.

Mine has the power center in the bottom RH corner of the cabinet. I have to relocate plus Iíve made a few other additions that require more amperage.
