Heating a Double wide portable

8 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone uses a double wide portable, where 4 people can fish back to back? If so, can one heater heat that much space?

Thanks.

I don't know about that Paul,
Bluewater Bait in Bemidji has a heater that just might do it.

I could very well be wrong, because I haven't tried it in a double wide. However Jeff Beckwith has and it would be interesting to hear his take on it.

Even if one heater would have the capacity to heat a double wide, I would think you would never be able to find a "happy medium".

By the time the people on the opposite side of the house were comfortable, and the holes on the opposite side would stop freezing, the folks closest to the heater would be sweating to death...

I have an otter resort and I even use 2 heaters at times, I hang a buddy heater from the back, and place a sunflower in the corner... I also have made panels out of reflectix insulation that I can fasten to the back and the top with velcro - this helps out tremendously....

I have one that will do it. This thing is a tank, but fits on a 20# tank. It is a Focus 30. One burner is 15000 btu and with both burners on it is 30000 btu. How's that for heat, LOL? I put it in a small two man and had to turn it off after 5 minutes. It is just a little bulky and pretty loud, but man does it put out the heat. That heater would make Tim the Toolman proud! I use it in my 10x16 shed when messing around out there in the cold. Now I just need a few flowers and hula girls.

I have a Century infared regulated propane heater, 3 setting low, med and high. 10 000 to 12 000 btu's. I use this in a small one man portable on low heat and heat a 6 man permanent house on high. The unit is a bit bulky being on on propane tank but lasts 3-4 months on a full tank going out twice a week for 10 hrs a session. You can even turn the head around and use it to cook on.
Cheers!!

We use the Mr. Heater Cooker and it heats the 4 man no problem as long as it is above zero. If it is really cold we run a Buddy on one side and the cooker on the other. Plenty of heat.

    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend....or yers?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
