J,

Good to hear. I was thinking of buying a Mr. Heater, but read a review saying it wouldn't work at over 6,000' elevation. That just won't work, obviously.

AH that was a relief to get out and play for a little. It was a little up on P2P and there was some ice and snow on the road up Coal Creek.






Boulder creek was even a bit icy. Hey is was a balmy 26 degrees up there.



That is all.

Duke,

Don't waste you time with a Mr. Heater. At elevation they just don't work. DAMHIK:

You must have the special one then J They sure did not work up at the cabin at 9200'.

Well OK. We had four of them up at the cabin and one did work. I have no idea why the one would and the other three would not.

One of the ones that sits on top of a propane bottle would work good for you. Just remember not to burn up all your oxygen and die. That would not be a good thing.

Not sure what to think. I've been wanting to get something that could run off of propane, could work at altitude and would be safe inside by Flip-pac truck/tent camper.

Any thoughts on these ?

I have a Mr. Heater in my 1000 sq. ft. garage, like the one in post 3084 (but 3 heads). It replaced the kerosene heater that was choking me. No fume problems so far. I tried all three burners once or twice, two problems: too warm, guzzled propane. I dress warmly and have the heater within 8' or so. When my fingers won't bend any more (don't hurt, just won't bend), I hold them over the heater like a campfire. Good for another half hour. And who doesn't like a campfire?

You can run one, two, or three heads at low, med and high. One valve for the three heads, so all have to be on low, med or high. 8000-42000 btu

It will run two burners on medium for two 10 hour days on a 20# bottle.

I'm at 5800 ft.
Edit: flashback, it also worked fine at 8200 ft. Cooke City, Montana

I have 2 old 16 ft. garage doors, would I use this in a camper? Maybe to knock the chill off, paying close attention.

My garage must be vented so well that I don't notice issues with fumes or oxygen using my propane tank mounted heater. And I've used my Mr. Heater at pretty decent elevations without issue. Maybe I'm already half brain dead.

Duke - get a pot belly stove & feed it what ever. Junk mail, beetle kill pine, etc.

Ben,

I used my Mr. Heater(portable buddy above) in my flip-pac many times. It even shut off on it's own from what I assume was low O2 or high CO. Not sure which it uses to shut down.

I've used my Mr. Heater in high altitidue many times. It does take longer for it to start the clean burn though.

You do get LOTS of condensation from the heater.

It will go much better when he turns it up the right way!
