I set out on a camping adventure to test out a tent in the rain. The task was simple, find a location, set up the tent, eat delicious food, and wait for rain. I was successful. I tested the tent in two ways. 1. how well it would perform in the rain 2. how did it fair as a winter hot tent. The Eddie Bauer 3 season tent took on some rain through the night which I was a bit dissatisfied with. The amount of rain would have only allowed me to brush my teeth but not rinse. So hence the dissatisfaction as I was looking forward to banging on my fangs. The tent performed well with the Mr. Heater Portable Buddy. With many windows throughout the tent, I was able to easily ventilate any odorless harmful gasses that may have been produced from the buddy heater and reached temps over 100f/37c. I was not as successful In ridding any other gasses that may have been produced during the night (Thank you dinner) as they seemed to linger but dissipated with time.

I can’t stress enough the importance of making sure you have good ventilation while using a propane heater. Please have multiple ways of detecting CO. Mr. Heater has a low oxygen sensor built-in but having a second detection source is a must. NEVER run your heater while you are asleep. In this video, I only used the heater while awake and with plenty of ventilation. Please and I stress, please do your research before ever considering using a propane heater in a tent, and make sure the heater is designed for indoor use, as Mr. Heater is. If in doubt, leave it out! SAFETY first everyone!
