Can I use propane with this unit? If not, I am looking for a 48" unit either ventless or direct vent.

This unit is simply a firebox and does not include gas logs. Propane vent free log sets can be used in it, however. Vent free fireplaces that are larger than 42 inches are uncommon, due to the 40,000 BTU limitation placed on vent free indoor burners. Larger units could simply not offer enough flame to fill the box.
However, larger direct vent units do exist. One popular unit that we carry is the Empire Tahoe Premium Direct Vent Propane Fireplace with Standing Pilot - 48 Inch
. This unit has the impressive big box look and the high efficiency rating that is characteristic of Empire fireplaces.

What log set - size & brand would be good for this 42" vent free firebox? Does this need outside air for combustion? If yes, what model combustion air assembly should I purchase?
By eFireplaceStore on June 18, 2014
Answer:For the 42 inch box, a 30 inch log set will be the proper size. Do you have any preferences on control options (manual control, remote on/off, variable flame remote) for the unit?
This unit does not have provisions for outside combustion air, but as long as the room is large enough, it will not be necessary. If you would like to provide the dimensions of the room and if there are adjacent rooms open to the area, I can advise further on the air needed.

Does the inner panels come out in case a person would ever have to access the electrical receptacle that is mounted in the far right side corner? As it is now, a person will have to reach back through the center access panel just to plug in the accessory like the blower and the light kit option. The model we
are working on is VFS42FBOF Ser. 1646462509 It is a stretch to reach the factory mounted receptacle behind the back panel. You would never be able to replace the receptacle unless main back or side panel comes out.
