Electric Fireplace

Has anyone installed a flush wall mounted fireplace. I am looking for a thin 4" or 5" fireplace that I can mount so the slide doesn't interfere.

Dimplex makes several:

Most coach builders use one of these.

I sure wish we could have one but there's just no place to install it!

We had one in a 5er and loved it! Good luck on finding one you can use!

Yes I wanted to install one on my wall but wall is only 3" and only 4" between wall and slide. Most fireplaces are 6 to 7" and they need 3"
of clearance on the back, so I guess I will just forget that idea also.

Bob, your correct on the depth, but some wall mounted fireplaces mount right to the wall thus no clearance, on the back. The requirement for clearance is distance from the ceiling and floor. I have a flamelux alps which came with a hanging bracket which you mount to the wall, then hang the fireplace on it. Have you considered that you could put the mounting bracket on the wall and mount and dis-mount the fireplace when you want to use it. The fireplace gross weight is around 33 lbs, thus is very manageable and would be no big deal to go through the process. You would also need a wall outlet/receptacle close by to directly plug into.

In my case for in the MH, I need to jury rig some kind of swinging arm to mount the fireplace on. Good luck

Our last 5er had two Dimplex fireplaces. They were electric heat, but no blower. We stopped using them for heating purpose because a stand-alone space heater with a fan heated the 5er better.
I would not buy them again. About 2008 Dimplex recalled all their fireplaces that used a remote because they caught fire behind the unit at the remote plug-in to 120 power.
