That be me.
You'll be glad when you get it. I bought mine from MVBEGGS, worth every penny. I was just spinning tales of our trip across the El Camino del Diablo in January. At night the temps dipped below freezing. No lie, second night I woke up sweating (sleeping in boxers with a sheet) and my digital thermometer read 122 degrees in the tent.

Mr.Heater probably makes one of the best heaters and the big buddy would be the choice for a family tent.Zodi heaters claim to be the safest being outside the tent.Here is a good tent heater comparison

Maybe this will help a little (note temporary stick stabilizer has since been replaced :D). This is my first run installing my Habitat Propex into the AT housing and using it with a large trailer tent. Worked great in freezing temps:

LoL...that's awesome !!!

Thanks for posting....
I wonder if the box needs to be leveled for it to work properly.. Im looking at installing mine on the back of the rig (not permanently, but only when in use) on one of swing outs..

^^^^ every pic helps...
I see yours is level..
Im looking at getting the Propex HS2211.
It says it can be installed in an upright (vertical) position.
It sounds like it is water proof as I see they have a poser shot of this unit under a rig.
Mine would be outside on the elements only when in use....and stored during transport.
thanks for the pics guys !!!
