Portable propane heaters on sale at Bi-Mart until 3-8-15

I couldn't figure out where to put this so I thought I'd put it in the forum section I spend most of my time in.

Bi-Mart has sale prices on the Mr Heater Buddy and Big Buddy propane heaters. The 9K BTU Buddy is on sale for $70, the 18K BTU Big Buddy is $100. THese heaters are indoor safe as long as used as specified in the manual. Limit 2.

Coleman disposable propane cylinders, the smaller dark green ones that can run lanterns and some smaller stoves and heaters, etc., are on sale for $2.79, limit 4.

Bi-Mart stores are located in the Pacific North Wet and anyone can shop there despite their membership model (at least I've never seen them kick anyone out unless they wanted to write a check to purchase their stuff and weren't members).

ORV 19B Full Timer, '14 Ram 2500 Diesel and a GSD. This signature updated, August 13, '16.

Portable propane heaters consume oxygen, something the small interior area of a trailer or most other RVs don't have in great supply in cold weather. I'd never use a portable LP heater in such a limited space. An RV usually has a CO detector, and a smoke detector, but a properly operating portable LP heater will consume oxygen and your detectors won't give a beep. The LP furnace installed in most RVs is carefully designed to use air and exhaust the by products all outside the RV, never allowing anything by recirculated, heated air into the living quarters.

We've been using the smaller Mr Buddy for 5 years. Works great to take that morning chill out of the trailer. Way better than running the furnace. It also makes zero noise. Never had an issue with running out of air in the trailer. I don't think I'd run one all night though. But that's just me.
Also they don't run at higher elevations. BTDT at 6200'. Couldn't get it to light.
Great prices though.

The nice thing about MR Heater/Big Buddy is they have a sensor built in and will shut off if O2 drops below certain level and they're good for moving outdoors while your having that morning coffee on your RV patio Myself I changed over to the Delonghi Micathermic panel heater which has a frost setting that will keep your RV above 45 degrees when stored or warmer but it's 110.
