Wheelhouse Heater/Propane


Recommended Posts

So I have been working on my new to me wheelhouse this fall/winter and everything was working fine until this cold snap. I can't get the heater to come on now. Could this be an issue with dormant propane in the lines freezing up? I left the valve open but shut the heater off because I have been working on it every night...is this frowned upon as well? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Plan on bringing it to a heated shed this weekend to finish everything and hopefully figure out the heater issue.

Not sure what kind of weather you've had down there recently, but I have had the breather hole on my regulator get ice over it and when this happens the stove or heater will not light or work. Just go out and find the breather hole on the regulator and try to warm it up with your hands and melt the thin layer of ice that's covering it and it should work fine. I really don't think propane freezing in the line would be an issue. Check to make sure the tank isn't empty and then check the breather hole on the regualtor.
