Heater Cooker Storage ??

7 posts in this topic

What does everyone use to store/transport the Mr. Heater Cooker & stand? This is the most awkward object that I have in my sled and I can't figure out how to pack it. I usually end up throwing the heater in a 5-galllon bucket and letting the stand float around somewhere in the sled.

I use a milk crate. I can get it and 4 1# bottles in there easy. Once I start running the snowmobile and pulling the house with it I go to the 11# tank and the heater on top of that. I store the 11# and a wrench in a milk crate and the heater goes in a 5 gallon pail with other odds and ends.

I built a plywood box the same size as the box the heater

came in and pack in it the same way with a little foam to

keep everything tight.

the only down side to this is having to shut the heater

off first and pack it up last because of the foam(melted foam smells bad)

I modded my house so it fits nicely under my seat with my vex.

I'm still on the lookout for a metal milk crate for mine... I'm going to copy the setup I saw in a guy's sled, he'd used those little bitty spring clamps, and clipped it in the middle of the crate , and had space for cans around it. could also use the 20# adapter hose, and leave it coiled in the crate when not in use.

    •     The assumption here being that since he didn't know, nobody knew.    Because obviously, nobody is smarter than him.
    •   Thanks for the reply. I was looking at the IQ pro hunter. It is a three pin, two fixed and one that is adjustable. The other would be the 5 pin micro.   i have thought about an HHA single pin but the sight makes me nervous to have in the rut. if ever I need to take a quick shot in an area I didn't expect a deer to come from
    •     Or possibly just one, since the two parties are getting more alike all the time.   Probably not a constitutional convention in the normal sense, but as we turn more and more into a police state, there is a definite possibility of a military coup.  There was a survey done in 2015, and 43 percent of Republicans surveyed said they could envision a military coup in the U.S.   http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2015/09/10/Military-Coup-US-Surprising-Number-Americans-Might-Support-One     Republicans (43 percent) were more likely to say they can envision a scenario in which they could support a military coup than Democrats (20 percent). Perhaps that difference is related to having a Democratic president who some critics on the right see as overstepping his power.     (What's laughable is those same critics have no problem at all with a Republican president overstepping his power.)
    • Don't have to worry, there won't be a constitutional convention.    And we will have two parties or what passes for parties for a long time.
    • This Health biatchin reminds me of a dog that keeps barking and chasing a car down a street daily--then one day the car stops and the dog doesn't know what to do so it just pizza on one tire or walks away.
    • Juneau4 and Swiveldigger  each picked up a win- 200 whoopin pts. (That has to be an all time low for winning) and they didn't have the same drivers.   We had a couple contestants that had 0 pts and that may be because they just didn't get entered in time, so I'm thinking I can put it in where you can have a Mulligan for each segment. (Your low score for 1 week is thrown out each segment-Spring, summer, and playoff.  I'll try to have a winner each segment and a overall champion.   What do you guys think? I'm just thinking if more wish to join now it would possibly make it more interesting through out the year.
