• This heater is a combustion appliance. All combustion
appliances produce carbon monoxide (CO) during the
combustion process. This product is designed to produce
extremely minute, non-hazardous amounts of CO if used
and maintained in accordance with all warnings and
instructions. Do not block air flow into or out of the heater.
• Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning produces flu-like
symptoms, watery eyes, headaches, dizziness, fatigue and
possibly death. You can't see it and you can't smell it. It's
an invisible killer. If these symptoms are present during
operation of this product get fresh air immediately!
For outdoor use only .
Never use inside house, or other unventilated or
enclosed areas.
This heater consumes air (oxygen). Do not use in
unventilated or enclosed areas to avoid endangering
your life.
• Keep all connections and fittings clean. Make sure

use with any device.
• Check entire hose at least annually.
• Never leave heater unattended when hot or in use.
• Keep out of reach of children.
• This product is fueled by propane gas. Propane gas is
invisible, odorless, and flammable. An odorant is normally
added to help detect leaks and can be described as a
“rotten egg” smell. The odorant can fade over time so
leaking gas is not always detectable by smell alone.
• Propane gas is heavier than air and leaking propane will
sink to the lowest level possible. It can ignite by ignition
sources including matches, lighters, sparks or open flames
propane gas set up for vapor withdrawal.
• Propane gas should be stored or used in compliance with
local ordinances and codes or with ANSI/NFPA 58. Turn off
propane when not in use.
• Never store propane near high heat, open flames, pilot
lights, direct sunlight, other ignition sources or where
temperatures exceed 120 degrees F (49°C).
Propane vapors are heavier than air and can accumulate
in low places. If you smell gas, leave the area immediately.
• Never install or remove propane cylinder while heater is
lighted, near flame, pilot lights, other ignition sources or
while heater is hot to touch.
• This heater is red hot during use and can ignite
flammables too close to the burner. Keep flammables at
least 36” from sides & 36” from top. Keep gasoline and
other flammable liquids and vapors well away from heater.
• The propane cylinder must always be stored outdoors in a
well ventilated space. Never store propane cylinder in an
enclosed area (house, garage, etc.). If heater is to be
