Default Buddy heater on a bottle

Has anyone experienced any trouble from using a 20lb bottle. Was worried about moisture or some unknown before hooking up. Tired of messing with the 1lb'ers and the money makes it a no brainer.

You’ll need an in line filter for a big bottle. After I put one on it worked great.

I use an inline filter and a 5lb tank in the deer stand. it will last a while, plus it's easy to carry.

I've used the hose with inline filter for the last 3 years in my barn for heat. Never had a single issue. A 20lb bottle on medium heat will last over 24 hours and it keeps the barn toasty even when its butt arse cold outside

Just getting plugged. Propane is dirty. Causes it to foul out.

Why is there no filter on homes that use propane?

I've heard it will plug up. I haven't had that happen to me.

The guy who told me said it was a 10year old one and he changed the filter and it started working again


I should've clarified that

You can buy a specific hose that does not require the filter. I believe it is the 6.5ft mr heater brand. Whichever one it is, it specifically says it does not require the inline filter

I have one .. it works if you figure out how to use it.. I freeze the empty bottle for 30 min .. attach it to the fitting and big bottle . Turn the 20 lb upside down and open the valve.. it will fill the small one.. if you open it standing right side up you just gas the small bottle..

Been there and done that. Didnít like having to take the little bottles back and forth. A big bottle in my stand has lasted 2 hunting seasons and still going.

Been using the MR heater hose and 20LB bottles for about the past 6-7 years in 4 different stands with no problem Its the only way to go. A bottle will last us a whole season. My only gripe is i wish the heaters had a lower setting lol in a 4X6 with windows cracked and then opened at times for fresh air it will get HOT!
