I have finally decided to make a purchase I've been putting off for two years and get a Mr. Heater Big Buddy.
My questions are if any of you that own them, do you use the low pressure regulator or is it unnecessary? And, do you keep a spare filter in case of clogs?
I have a number of small propane tanks that I use to power my Coleman stove for camping and also have several 20 lb. tanks to either refill the small tanks or to power the Mr. Heater for longer outages.
I have 2 of them. If you use the 1 pound cans nothing else is required. I also have a hose assembly for a 20 pound can. (Some government agency have dictated that a 20 pound can is unsafe inside.) I bought the hose assembly from Cabela's a few years back.
I have a friend that had a hunting cabin up here, and he used a big buddy to heat his cabin. It was approx. 15x20 guessing. One big buddy kept it comfortable for him. His girl friend said she was cold.
There are several videos on YouTube that shows how to refill the 1 pound cans using a 20 pound can.
