Again, prudent to post this clearly in case others were not aware of this. As noted, we cover the air circulation needs buy windows and vents being opened while operating the Buddy. As noted, we have two CO detectors, one that has the other posters mentioned readings of current value. As noted, all equipment is properly maintained.
And my point on those other devices that are 'external' air combustable, is that if not properly maintained - they too can kill you. Just read this winter about a couple and two kids that died from CO after running there 'external air sourced' generator too long, without enough breezed to blow away the foul killing stuff.
Again, prudent to post. But also again, still just my opinion - 'internal' sourced heating units can be used safely.
ALL EQUIPMENT IN THESE RIGS NEED PROPER MAINTENANCE AND CAUTIONS WHILE USING. Not, just internal air consuming heaters...
I've said my piece, and will move on to other posts
Best to all, be safe (I say this in many signing off's), have fun (Say this too, and that is the key to me!),
