Another Buddy Heater Question

Recommended Posts

I tried out my Buddy heater yesterday and could not keep the pilot light going.

I tested the unit out at home befor going out and the heater worked fine.

I fish out of a older Clam Scout and the skirt does allow some breeze in. I finally had to move the heater off of the ice to behing the seat to keep the pilot going.

At home I could put the pilot out by lightly blowing on the pilot.

I am wondering if this is a normal pilot function??

I have thought of making a breeze shield for the pilot but do not want to modify the unit if the pilot is defective.

Any Suggestions??

Thanks for the sugestion but the scout is a flip up with no D door. frown.gif

It may be time to up grade to a Guide or Yukon.

Heard of that same problem from a guy at work.Mine snuffs out after it's been running awhile.I think the small oraface that goes into the propane bottle freezes up on mine.Check out the Mr. Heater web site they have a troubleshooting guide and email the company about your problem, that's what i did.Still having trouble with it though and I've only used it a couple of times

My new Buddy Heater (yellow Tough Buddy, small one) does not snuff out or have weak pilot that I have seen. Gone through about two cans only of fuel, so not much time yet, but the pilot stays on strong.

The pilot light on mine goes out pretty easy too. I just keep the heater behind my seat in the Fishtrap, and it works great.

    • Stuff is getting hard to find so best load up on ammo I'd you find it.  Many have rebates going now so that helps some.   I haven't shot the new Feferal TSS shot yet but guys that have report excellent patterns and downrange energy.  Luke Don mentioned 45 yards is doable depending on your gun's pattern.  Two springs ago my dad dumped a big Tom at 54 yards, (misjudged the yardage and bird was working away) with the federal heavyweight in 6 shot with his 20 gauge.  I'm not advocating for shooting those distances, but it's a testmate to how far this ammo has come. 
    • I've been seeing them in corn fields and around home owner homes.
    • if you have gone through a set of carbides in 1000 miles you definitely need to change them now as you are getting a lot of wear 
    • Just a reminder this Seminar is tonight.
    • I did shoot the RX-1 but there was more hand vibration and a little louder. RX-3 did not have any of that . Also could just be in my head but felt smoother in the draw too.
    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
