    Default Portable buddy

    Alright so I just purchased a buddy heater and it says that I should never use it in enclosed areas but I was wondering because I see people using these all the time in their huts. I own a eskimo quikfish 3 so I have two vents at the top of the tent. I ran it for 15 minutes in my basement with the door open and there was a distinct odour that I personally relate with propane combustion is that supposed to happen or is it a sign of incomplete combustion. I might be a little paranoid but Iím really nervous about the Carbon monoxide.

    Thanks

    No worries at all, these portable huts aren’t airtight. Opening the vents won’t hurt but in my opinion not necessary. I run mine for 8 hours straight lots of days.

    Mine has an auto shut off if: 1] tips over, 2] detects high co2. Great heater for ice tent.

    I have a Coleman heater and it says tent safe. I always wonder if maybe I could launch a lawsuit for brain damage from CO poisoning.

    They have a shut off as mentioned. I am thinking that it is either a CO or a low oxygen one which shuts off the unit. But no pop up is that air tight.

    Your pop up has vents that should circulate and vent off air, thats why they have them. but if your really concerned every so often crack the window or open the door for a minute.

    Just curious which heater you have? I have a medium buddy heater and it has the tip over shut off and low oxygen shut off, but they do not shut off with high co2.
    To the op, no need to worry in a hut, but open your vents if you are worried. That smell is probably just the new heater smell, it will disappear.
