Mr Heater Cooker Question

21 posts in this topic

What's up guys, quick question. I am planning on picking up the cooker. What hose should I get to connect to a larger tank? I do not want to have to deal with the 1 pounders all the time. And, where around the Blaine area can I get tanks filled? If anyone has the answer'ss I would appreciate it.

I recommend the green 10' hose....it eliminates the need for a separate filter and hose assembly....also works on buddy heaters.

As far as propane goes: SA on University and 109th fill tanks. Also Little Bighorn is a good place to go and that is further west on 109th/Northdale. There has got to be a few places in Lino or Circle Pines that fill or at least exchange. Holiday and Fleet Farm on Lexington should both have exchanges. If you find yourself heading the way of Flake MotoMart is very reasonable.

Which tank would you guys recomend? I dont really want to go with the 20 lbs cause I fish out of my car and it will eat space. How does the 12 lbs tank work for everyone? Is it worth it to just get the 20?

I have a 5 lb tank and like it, especially for early ice when I am pulling everything by hand. Only downfall is you have to fill up more often.

I've read that you shouldn't need a filter (or a hise that filters) when running the cookers. I had one that I ran for 3 years w/o a filter, but then I got the Big Buddy (got the filter with it). Although, probably better safe than sorry - get the filter or the green hose to be save.

Re: tank size - I have a 5lb tank that I thought I would use early and late ice to reduce weight, but I've found myself using 20lbers all the time. 5lb tanks are nice though size-wise.

Looking to get one myself. Can you guys comment on burn time? (Ex. 1 lb,5 lb,and 20 lb) Typical hi/low settings. Does a 1 lb burn out in 1 1/2 hours on hi, 3 hours on low?

Tested the one pounder the last couple nights. It lasts aprox. 2 hours on low. That is all you get out of it.

5 lb'er are great if your pulling by hand or have limmited room but a 20 will cost less to buy. Mikes LP on Frost Ave in Maplewood will make you any hose, any length, with the right connections and fill your tanks for less $ than to exchange. They also can repair your small or large heaters. Yesterday they made me two hoses out of my one longer damaged hose using all new wrenchless tank connections and new connections for the heater for just over $30 in less than 5 minutes.

Great place to deal with!

    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
