Thanks Mike. I'm not sure of the exact name of the coleman. I can't seem to find it online. I would really like to find something I can use if I end up camping at a non electrical site. Good to know about a CO detector. Never would have thought about that. If I have to then I'll look at prices for a proper RV furnace and hook the propane lines back up. What I have been doing is running the heater for a couple hours at night to get it warm and just turning it off before I crash but the heat disipates pretty quickly.

Try looking into Mr. Heater Big Buddy or Little buddy, new for about $100 for the Big Buddy, has low O2 shutdown, nice little heaters.

Thanks for the pic James. So does that just use a little green propane tank?

Yes, it works with 1 lb green bottles or you can buy an adapter (proprietary) to hook up a 20 lb tank.

I"ve used both the black cat and the buddy heaters... BOTH are awesome but I actually think they are OVERKILL for the little 13 footers. I used one of each to keep my WHOLE HOUSE warm (1400 square feet) during some severe ice storms where I had no power for 6 days. Everyone came to my house because I had the heat and the propane for cooking and all the camping equipment anyone might need. I think the sportcat is the PERFECT size for a little 13 footer. I used to tent camp with the black cat in a 6 man tent in 40-50 degree weather and we would SWEAT in the tent with it on LOW. the sport cat might be the best... and teeniest option. BUT YES crack a window!!! Coleman SportCat Catalytic Heater - Walmart.com

It turns out that I have the Procat model. I bought it at Canadian Tire about 2 years ago. I can't seem to find it online so I don't know if they even make it anymore.

Scratch that. I found it online with some pretty good reviews.
