LP Fireplace

A friend of ours has ordered a new Pinnacle 5er and it went on the line to be built Dec. 19. In a conversation we were having he said that his particular model (it's a front living room) has a LP fireplace and there was NO option to have it made with what I guess comes in every other model they build which have electric. Is this true?? I don't think I would ever want a LP fireplace. Any input????

I would think moisture will be condensing on the walls and windows unless very well ventilated when in use.

The only propane heaters I have seen for RV indoor use are the catalytic type. It ould need to vented if it is a direct flame type.

I would love to see a vent-free propane heater that looked more like a fireplace.

We use a blue-flame vent-free propane heater, and it gives off incredible heat and is fun to stand near (like a fireplace) but it looks a little more industrial than romantic!! Moisture from condensation is an issue, but it's manageable…

I wrote up a step-by-step guide for installing these kinds of heaters that might help anyone interested in these kinds of things:

That does not sound right, do not know of any 5th Wheel manufacturer that is factory installing a standard LP Fireplace at the factory.

My guess is it will be an electric fireplace like all the other models have.

I agree with Rob_fla, there had to be a misunderstanding. The salesman was thinking stove but said fireplace or something like that.

Electric heater fireplaces are really showing up in a lot of rigs. Not LP fireplaces.

Must be electric. I am sure it was a misunderstanding.
