The Make we found was a Greystone. Think we got it on e bay. Has dual heat setting (750/1500) think 3 fan settings and thermostatically controlled. Also has a remote control. Am sure we paid less than $200 for it. Also it has a more realistic look than many we've seen.

Our 35B has that same useless cabinet! Now I believe I see the right mod for the area.

The job really looks great I can't wait to see the finished fire place.

Oh yeah thanks for making me work more!!

Well, finally finished up the install. It took a little longer because I installed a 10" JL sub woofer and Rockford Fosgate 300w amp. I also installed some Infinity 6030 in the headliner with separate tweeters (black dots above wifey). It sounds fantastic with the pos Jensen head unit. I'm big into audio and was totally blown away at how good it sounds. Anyway, here's the pics..

Not really a fireplace but it has the effect and puts out heat as well. My wife really liked the idea since we were looking at coaches that had them but bought one that doesn't. I put it down under the table in a cabinet that really was worthless. Put the TV up behind it and the lights down low and it gives a real nice effect and close it up during the day.

That looks really good

How much depth did you need for the install ? I would like to do the same install but only have about 4" slide clearance and the wall is about 3"

Thanks!
The fireplace is only 4" deep from the inside of the front lip to the back. It sticks out another 3/4" in the front. The install is pretty quick and easy. You just have to come to grips with modifying your cabinetry.

Where did you buy your firelace unit?
I have been searching for one but most I have found were about 6" deep.
By the way it looks great right there, wish I had room there.

on ebay. The name was "Clevr". I'd post you a link, but I can't get to ebay on my work computer. Search "Clevr electric fireplace". Note that this unit does not have a thermostat. What it did have was 1) the proper size for my install, 2) remote control because I knew I wouldn't be able to get to any switches, and 3) my price range..ie: CHEAP! Hahahaha.
I really do like the "flame" though. Looks really nice the way they did it. I think I might get a recorded "crackle" sound for the background.

ya.. I'm full of ideas...

some of them are actually good ones too!

Mel,

If that's just your way of saying you'd love to have a fake fireplace if someone would help install than I'm sure we can find someone to help.
