2205 fireplace Hardwired or AC plug

We have a 2205 on order. Wondering if the fireplace is AC plug or is it hardwired? Anyone know the wattage draw? thanks all

Most electric heaters (fireplaces) on high will draw around 1500 watts, I would guess it is hard wired

Almost ALL (I said almost) ALL electric fireplace units are maxed at 1500 watts because that’s the normal rating for breakers behind electrical outlets.....a 15 amp breaker.

RV fireplaces are no different than what you’d buy for your house.
Hard wired or plug in, depends on the assembly line. No biggy either way.

Our 2205s the fireplace is hardwired. No visible cords or outlet for fireplace.

Feels like high heat output is 1500 watts, works well and has a few heat settings and goes off with built in thermostat.

Does a good job, cold outside in the 30's F and kept it comfortable inside.

Still not sure if remote control works the fireplace... Furrion universal remote has a fireplace button on it, but does not operate the fireplace, but we may not being doing something right, otherwise fireplace has buttons on top to work all features.

plug type electric portable heater

Just something that I wanted to share......I have a new 2511s and use a 1500 watt portable heater from time to time. In the past, I found that if I run the heater at 750 watts, the plug-in cord gets a little warm, but run it on 1500 watts and the plug and outlet get hot. Really hot. I changed out the outlet to a 20 amp outlet (leaving the same 14ga wire and 15 amp circuit breaker) and found that the temperature of the cord and outlet does not get warm. I attribute this to the fact that the 20 amp outlet has greater tension and therefore less resistance. I have done the same to any outlet that I want to plug the heater into.
