REFUELING WITH THE SAME FUEL
Death or serious injury may occur if fuel is not handled carefully. Always place fuel can
and stand in well-ventilated area as far away from open flames and other potential igni-
tion sources as possible. Fuel hoses shall not be located near the combustion exhaust
outlet or under that end of the heater. Fuel spills must be cleaned up in accordance with
Only those fuels identified in Table 3 of WP 0001 entitled General Information rated for
the outside temperature where the heater will be operating should be used. Failure to
observe fuel requirements could cause damage to the heater and injury or death to
personnel within or around the tent and the heater.
Always switch heater control to the OFF position and wait until the blower fans stop and
all advisory lights go out before beginning a refueling operation.
Always keep fuel hoses and fuel cans clean and free of dust, dirt, and water. Make sure
fuel hoses lie flat without kinks or loops that could trap air in the lines and slow the fuel
flow to the heater.
The heater should run for about 14 hours on five gallons (18.9 L) of fuel.
Place the ON/OFF switch (1) of the in-tent controller assembly (2) in the OFF position or verify that it is in
the OFF position.
If the heater assembly has been operating, allow it to complete the post-purge mode and make certain
that all advisory lights (3) are off.
