Big buddy in wheel house


Recommended Posts

My old handi heater is finally about done. Was wondering how a big buddy would work out instead of buying a wall mount style? It would be nice to be able to take it out of the wheel house and bring with if I was going in the portable. My house is a 8x10 with good insulation and a couple windows for some fresh air. Anyone ever used a big buddy as there heat source in there wheelhouse. Advantages - disadvantages ?

i think you would be happy with the investment. My buddy uses mine during deer hunting to heat his 30 foot fith wheel camper. I have a all season sports trailer made by canvas by the stitch, and if your not familiar with those there a 6x15 insulated canvas house/trailer and a bid buddy is all i use. I've gotten it up to 103 inside with it being 0 outside.

Now i also have it hooked to a 20 pound tank, wich i guess could be a disadvantage depending on how your house is set up.

Just scored a good deal on one off c list. Hooked up to a 20lb in the garage. Seems to rip pretty good. I was reading that ur soposed to buy a fuel filter if your using a 20lb tank. Is that needed or is it just a marketing gimick??? I've got a 10ft hose from a propane torch that I have. The hose has a regulator on it but looks like the big buddy already has a built in regulator.
