I need some info on installing a heater in my enclosed snowmobile trailer.
Anyone know of a good web page to get some help? Thanks

With a heater installed some of my friends can spend the weekend sledding &
have a place to sleep & be warm.

Check out camper furnaces. I looked at replacing the one in my camper. The
cost was 800 cdn for the complete furnace. Build a box to put it in, add a
couple of propane bottles, plus a 12 volt battery and your good to go.

Don’t forget a carbon monoxide and propane gas detector, a bunch of kids
died on a camping trip 2 years ago. I have ridden by their last camp spot a
few times on my sled. A very sad accident that could of been prevented with
a 25 dollar detector. All camping stoves and heaters should have these
detectors built in.

I installed a “vent-free” propane heater in my spare trailer 3 years ago. I
ran a trap tube, then copper tubing to the trailer tongue, where I installed a
holder for the propane tank.
I sold the trailer a year ago. But the setup worked great.
Always buy a bigger heater than what you need!!

Nobody touched on this yet.
Why would you want your buddies sleeping in a trailer, anyway?
And what about depleted oxygen levels inside?

Yes, the detectors are a must!

I originally thought that he was just joking. Now I don’t know what to
think. I guess there are worse places to sleep than inside a snowmobile

Well to carry this thread a little farthur, one way (not the most
comfortable) would be to duct tape a snorkle system to your face
connected to the outside air, and the rest of your body can exist inside
the oil, smelly, CO infested area, with the warmth of the heater. Like
sleeping under water with a air tank, LOL
