Garage heater wiring

Moderator note: separated from the following thread.

https://www.doityourself.com/forum/electrical-ac-dc/623007-garage-heater-thermostat.html

I just got a similar heater. 7500w mastercraft but the wiring diagram is the same. I have a 250V 50amp 14-50r receptacle in my garage. I was going to use a 4 wire range power cord to plug this in rather than hardwiring it, but I'm not sure how to do that properly. I assume each hot wire goes to L1 and L2 and the ground goes to ground. Where would the neutral wire go? (I'm not using an external thermostat)

Thanks

Cap the neutral. Your heater does not use it.
