Installing an electric fireplace

I am the proud new owner of a 1998 HR Endeavor 37CDS. I am in the process of upgrading and remodeling the interior. I am removing the couch on the dinette side and replacing it with a fireplace TV stand and recline. I am OK with mounting the TV to the stand, and getting the cables and electricity to where I need it, but before I begin, I'd like to know what others have done to secure the cabinet to the floor or wall?

I dont want to go in this blind and make an expensive mistake, or cause injury to myself or my coach. =)

As my dad always said, Measure twice cut once. So consider this query my first measurement. BTW I did search the forum but after 5 pages of irrelevant posts, I gave up and decided to just ask.

Thanks Everyone

Electric fireplace installs have been done by several members here.
He's ours:

An easy surface mount type.

And another:

A built-in look.

The main issues are power feed (proper and aesthetic) and heat path (heat rises, so be cautious).

Best luck

Free standing unit we have. From Costco a few years ago. Zero install other than to plug it in. Slides behind the passenger seat when traveling or not in use. Provides good heat and we enjoy the ambiance.
