Lowes is having a national sale of Mr. Heater Buddys. The heaters are half price $37.50 and the extension pipe is around $12.50. I went to 3 Lowes here in N.C. and they still had several heaters for sale. They will likely be gone soon. (For those in the Raleigh area, the Garner Lowes had about 8-9 left.)

Robert is right, thanks for the warning to those that do not know about the need for ventalation. A good item for the shop with the windows open or doors open but not for a small Fiberglass trailer.

[A little ventalation goes a long way. I have used my heater for hours at a time. I also have a combo smoke / co detector. I have not used it while sleeping.]

Randy, I think the recall had to do with the larger heaters. I have been told that recent heaters, large and small, are okay.

On the heater box it says, "designed and approved for indoor use" and "indoor safe propane heater."

It has an automatic "low oxygen" shut off system and an accidential tip-over safety shut-off.

Instructions say, "This heater can only be used in a recreational or commercial enclosure with a window or roof vent open."

I had planned to use mine on a short-term basis in my Casita with a window open. From the above posts, however, this may not be safe.

Anyone with views to the contrary please post.

I just borrowed one from a friend and used it this past weekend. I heated up the trailer to about 72 degrees at 10:30 pm at night and turned it off. We stayed warm throughout the night with a 30 degree overnight temp until about 5:30am when I woke up and fired her up again. They heat the area up quickly on the low setting. I kept the window in the back open about 1 1/2" and the fantastic fan cover open about the same when running the heater, then closed everything up to sleep. I'm going to buy one.

Exclamation

We went into Home Depot Last weekend 2/18 and asked about space heaters, we were looking for a new Ceramic one for our 16'FD, and the guy pointed us to a flatbed of what they had left. I could see it from halfway down they isle, and said that's mine. It was a Mr. Buddy Heater, marked down to $39.99, it said regular price $79.99. I didn't even know HD sold them. I had just seen an intrenet only, Member Only sale on them at Camping World for $95.00, and right now on RVWholesalers.com they want over $100.00. We also found a Holmes Saftey Ceramic Heater for it, marked down to $6.99.

I played with the Mr Buddy indoors in the family room with just one of the 1lb containers. It puts out a lot of heat, but only gets hot in the front. It was completely cool to the touch on the sides, top, bottom, and back. I checked out the Tip over feature and it shuts off the gas and turns it off. I think you should definately use a vent if using it inside a Travel Trailer. I don't think a 1lb container of gas could last long enough to kill you unless it was comletely sealed up and the ODS sensor wasn't working, but I still think I'll use it to heat it up before bed and heat it up in the mornings, I'd rather not sleep with it running.

We're headed West towards Yellowstone at the end of June, and I didn't realize, but the elevation is pretty high. It says the ODS doesn't work at high altitudes, because there isn't enough oxygen in the air as it is, so it will definaltely need some air circulation just to be able to run. At least I think so anyway.

Tom
