Has anyone seen this heater in action? Did a quick YouTube search and not finding any review videos.

I feel like there must be an advantage to a more expensive catalytic heater. I'm on 120v and should do the math. Wonder if electric would actually be cheaper. I would need to learn ballpark propane usage of the Mr Heater.

Im loving my Big Buddy. I got it for the 3 heat levels and im glad i did. Zero CO means complete combustion but Its curtains when the O2 gets too low. I keep a window cracked at each end of the rv. 1CF of LP = ~ 2500 btus. ~ 2.5 times hotter than NG. 1LB LP = ~ 21500 btu. Craig

Humidity is often a problem when RVing in cold temperatures. Unvented combustion heaters of any type put large amounts of moisture in the air, your furnace does not.
