I’m sorry that your wife is going to kill you [emoticon]. I can’t help because that would be illegal, but I know someone she can call for help [emoticon]

Jerry, thanks. Yes, I have it plugged into an outlet right now, at our house, as well as having 2 brand new deep cycle batteries installed. The owner told me it was electric only, as opposed to propane.


Since the previous owner says it is electric only, most likely it requires 110v.

Unless you have an inverter that powers the outlet you have the fireplace plugged into, the trailer needs to be plugged into Shore Power? If you do have an inverter powering the outlet, does it offer enough watts? Electric fireplaces usually require around 1500 watts.

Do all other electric outlets/appliances work? Do you have a meter, to check power coming to unit?

Husband may already be dead, as it appears WIFE Tami, was the one joining forum, and posting??

Just take it apart and visually inspect it if you have already plugged it into a reliable outlet in your home, remove from power source before disassembly. Otherwise just chuck it in the trash and get a better quality unit from Wallys or Amazon delivered in 2-3 days, after 10 years of bouncing around it may be a safety hazard anyway.

With colder temps upon us I recently had to get our electric space heaters ready, had to replace our decades old space heater as it would not turn on as well. Didn't see anything visually wrong, control board probably took a hit and quickly tossed it and picked up a vastly better version.

look for the tag showing who made it and the model number do a google search for the manual for it so you know how to work it some of them came with a remote control to operate it.
how do you set the temperature on it?
its just a electric heater with a light display that looks like a fire

Our electric fireplace only works with the generator running or shore power plugged in. It definitely won't run from the 12v batteries or inverter.

I agree that it's worth asking the seller.

Also check fuses and breakers.

OP replied in 2nd post "he/she is plugged into house outlet right now". So unless home breaker tripped, 120 AC should be available.
An older 15A circuit may not handle the wattage of the fireplace for a lengthy time.

If meter shows current to fireplace hookup source, the fireplace may have expired.
