Welcome to the forums.

I see this a Canadian built item.
The specs call for #14 wiring. I would suggest #12 minimum.
They also spec a 32A breaker.
A 20A breaker should be ok. I would not recommend anything over 25A.
In the manual they list a specific brand of GFI protection that won't randomly trip.
