Problems with my Little Buddy heater

I was having a problem with my Little Buddy heater staying lit. I finally got around to working on it today and all I did was use a straw and blew out the Pilot and gas feed and It works great.
Just in case anyone else is having trouble.

Re: Problems with my Little Buddy heater

Ron, you think it was just dust then? When I went to Zion in Nov, Don was having trouble with his but we thought it was an altitude issue.

Hello Dave
Im sure of it. As for Zion my house is at 6500 and that's higher than Zion so i would guess dust would be the problem your friend is having as well.

I'll relay that to Don...actually we were a 9200 feet out side the park where it dropped into the low teens and about 3 in the morning I heard click...click, click-click-click....clickclickclickclickclick &*%$#@% coming from his tent
All the time while I was in a mild Espar temp of 65 degrees...crap, hope he don't read this

Re: Problems with my Little Buddy heater

Dave, I've camped with you and Don before and maybe, just maybe you could let him sleep in the SMB...but, nah, let him freeze in the tent.

Bettyford, thanks for posting up. I have the Buddy and often wondered about the dust clogging it up.

Ya right Steve....you know even ear plugs wouldn't work for him ....you guys wait to place your vehicles until I set up, then you move off a couple extra hundred feet ....its his choice

Yes I Just crack a window. 10-15min and the van is warmed up. I never use it all night, mostly in the morning.

A question
the LB takes up about as much room as a suburban heater
why not have a built in unit?
