      Comments about Mr. Heater Portable Buddy Heater:

      We use it to supplement heat in our 34' camper when dry camping. We installed two supplemental CO detectors in addition to the CO detector that came with the camper, we use the Mr. Heater during the day with two of the roof vents open about a inch to allow for fresh air. I would not use this heater while sleeping - it does have a low oxygen cut off and a anti-tip device, but not worth the risk. We use our on board furnace for the overnight hours. This unit is great when camping without hookups as it keeps battery usage to a minimum.

      This heater worked very well. I had a smaller heater before but this one did better than I was hoping for. I'm glad I got this one.

      My home has an unheated enclosed porch that is pleasant to sit on but not in the cold months. The Little Buddy heater warms up the porch in about 10 minutes allowing my family to sit out there and watch the snow fall.

        I had checked several places on the internet before choosing Overton's.
        Their price was great AND they offered free shipping. That sealed the deal.

        And the item was delivered quickly to boot, just as described and in excellent condition.

        Will definitely check Overton's first before buying from other sources.

          Comments about Mr. Heater Portable Buddy Heater:

          I bought this for ice fishing and I am very happy I did. Its been -3F to 5F with wind chills making it feel like -15 to -20. My Frabill Outpost ice hut (6'x6') is very warm, once I reach a comfortable temp. I turn it down a bit to maintain otherwise you will use up 1 lb cylinders pretty quickly. It will last about 3 hours on hi with a 1 lb cylinder. Going to buy the hose and filter kit so I can run a 20lb cylinder. It heats up quickly, there is no odor and is super quiet. Wish it had a blower like it's big brother. I'm going to rig a deflector to the top as there is a lot of air movement going out of the top and I would rather have that blowing on me.

          • Q:

            Can I use this heater in a small camper van ?
            It would be real useful in our VW pop-up camper, I just was not sure if there was any emissions or breathing issues. I assume it is safe since it is advertised for RVs. We do have a 4yr old who camps with us.
            I have also heard there is a limitation with elevation.
            THANKS !

              You turn down the knob and switch to the ignite position while clicking the electric ignition. Easy as pie.

          • Q:

            Does this heater put off the propane smell? We have a small heater now that after an hour or tow you may get a headache because of the smell. we only use it for ice fishing in the shanty.

            Is this a catalytic heater?

            • A:

              Yes it is a catalytic heater, and a very efficient one at that! It can be used indoors, and has a low O2 sensor shut off. I am a fire department Lt. and paramedic. I have used, and continue to use this product with confidence. I find this product to be not only an efficient and quality product, but safe too. I would not use this product myself, much less endorse it, if it were not an efficient, safe, quality product. I hope this helps.
