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.
