Heat problem solved

I think I solved my being cold problem.
I can now suppliment my 5000 btu electric cube heater with my new $89.00 Mr. Heater ( on sale at Cabelas).

Lets see 10 ft box + 14000 btu total = mmmmmm feels good.

As long as I stay under 7,000 feet that is.

Cool!

Oop. Not funny, I guess.

Sounds great, Pete! I can't imagine that won't keep you nice and toasty! Planning a spring fling anywhere?

Hi Pete
Just thought that you should know we up here are working on designing a wood/coal heater for a few of us local RVers.If it works I will get back to you.
PS
It will be loaded from out side.

My heater solution

I am putting in a Force 10 "cozy cabin" propane heater.
It is a boat heater that has a stack that partially vents the exhaust and (water) out of the cabin or egg. It is 4000 btu on low and can be adjusted to 8000 btu, its very safe and mount on a bulkhead (wall)

Last summer, I saw a very fine installation of a similar marine vented propane heater in a Bigfoot on Vancouver Island -- Check the West Marine site for some solid, liquid and LP models (not all in the same heater of course)!

Force 10 heater

I was looking at that and some other boat heaters a few weeks back.
It's kind of big.
With just a 13 foot Burro one of us ( preferably the wife) would have to get out of the trailer.
Any movement in the trailer could produce a scorched butt.

The Mr. Heater stores nicely at the bottom of the closet.

No plans but you never know.

Don, not sure if your question was directed at me, but the one I saw was the Dickenson (in propane), also carried by West, but a lot more expensive than the Force 10. I dunno why the difference in price and would research a lot more if I were in the market.

It would be kinda nice to have the solid fuel model, kinda like having a fireplace, but I sure do like the convenience of just pushing a couple of buttons/knobs to run my heater for five minutes to take the chill off until I get supper or morning coffee going.:r

Pete and Rats who also appreciate the convenience

PS Of course, frugal as I am, if I had the solid fuel model, I could burn buffalo chips or whatever and save on propane, plus I believe the solid fuel heaters have a place on top for a teapot or whatever.

Pete J., I know it gets cold where you live, but, man, Pete, do you really need two heaters and a fireplace in your Burro?

Pete:

You're wintering in Florida, and want to take the 'chill' off your morning wakenings???

Well, some people............:)

The photo was in response to Chesters request regarding the Force 10. I must've typed a bit quicker than Debi who posted the same thing.
