Several members of my family own Mr Heaters, and they've all worked well. Would not hesitate to buy another.

But, for the sake of education, I feel compelled to respond to the reviewer who said this was a piece of junk and wouldn't trust it on his elk hunt because it kept shutting off...sounds to me like that heater was trying not to kill you.

All Mr. Heaters have a low oxygen shutoff. When carbon monoxide builds up because of a lack of oxygen, the heater shuts down and WILL NOT START until that situation is rectified. That's why it wouldn't turn on for several hours...you were sitting in a gas chamber and probably never realized it. The heater, fortunately for you, did.

Had that heater stayed running as you wish, you'd likely have never survived to write that review, or at the very least ended up brain dead. If you don't believe me, google "carbon monoxide death tent" and check out the first couple of links.

People who breathe carbon monoxide in large amounts become sleepy and disoriented. If they're already asleep, they simply never wake up. It's almost exactly the same as running a car in a closed garage.

You should be grateful. That heater probably saved your life.

    Comments about Mr. Heater BIG Buddy Indoor Safe Propane Heater:

    This product is easy to use and light weight. I also love the fact that I can hook it up to my 20 lb. tank, crack a window and I have heat. It puts out a good amount of heat and will heat any room without any problem.

      We use this product to heat our living when it is chilly outside, like this summer. We also use it in our fifth wheeler on chilly evenings. It small enough to fit in our RV and still give plenty of heat. Remember to purge the gas line before using it for the first time.

        I have a detached garage with no heat and no insulation and this baby does the job but because of it's so cold here I bought a second one and now I can work in the garage without wearing a jacket. Probably gets to 70 degrees using both on high :)
