be retained if needed for permanent mounting of the unit. (See figure 1-1.)

Observe the following requirements arid recommendations when installing the air conditioner.
a. The unit should
on a level supporting surface
to permit uniform condensate drainage.
If a level
surface is not obtainable, the unit maybe mounted on an angle not greater than 5 degrees from the horizontal. If this type
of mounting is unavoidable, be sure to connect the condensate drain to the drain opening in the lowest side of the base
plate. Drain plugs are located in the middle of each side of the baseplate. Standard 1/2-14 NPT fittings can be installed in
place of one or more of these plugs to conduct condensate drainage to a drain, storm sewer or dry sump, or a standard
garden hose may be used.
b. Rough-in Dimensions. An opening 18-1/2 1/2 inches (47 1 cm) wide, and 49 1/2 inches (124.5 1 cm)
high is required for installation of the air conditioner. A removable filler plate should be installed above the unit to permit
ready removal of the top panel for servicing. Space between the air conditioner and the wall may be filled with flexible
plastic foam and sealed with pressure-sensitive tape.
