Mr. Heater Indoor-Safe Portable RV Radiant Heater

So the "Mr. Heater" name always throws us, but this small unit throws off enough heat to light small rooms, or the inside of a tent, if necessary. It connects to a propane tank — 1 lb throwaways or up to 20 lb, which the manuf. says must be kept outside. The manufacturer also says it is safe indoors. However, we still counsel allowing a source of fresh air in your space in case of a malfunction. Better, perhaps, to warm a room and then turn it off rather than leaving on all night. We put this in the "handy" but "be wary" category.

    Be aware:  Any type of heater used in an enclosed space is inherently dangerous. People die of carbon monoxide poisoning. This product has both a sensor to detect low oxygen levels and an auto-shut-off if knocked over. All that being said, we suggest utmost vigilance from this or any similar product. Perhaps better used when awake and aware; and then turn off before going to bed (and snuggling into bedding, coats, hats, gloves...).

    Refer and follow all recommendations and instructions from the manufacturer.

  • FIELD NOTES

    This smaller, cheaper unit is fine for small spaces. The company also offers the "Big Buddy," which is larger and puts out more heat.

  • OFTEN BOUGHT WITH

    Propane, of course. Coleman is the standby. 1 lb throwaway cans like these can be considered. A 20-lb tank goes a lot further, of course, but MUST be stored and kept outside. Refer and follow all recommendations and instructions from the manufacturer.
