Remington Propane Heater

3 posts in this topic

I have a Remington REMCP25 heater a buddy of mine asked me to fix for him. Apparently he bought it last year for heating his portable fish house, and it never worked properly. So far I have rerouted the thermocouple, as it seemed to be slightly kinked. I hooked it up to an almost depleted 20 lb tank and ran it for a while. It started up fine and after a couple of minutes it cut out. It started right up again and ran for about 30min. until the tank ran out. I went and got a fresh tank and now it won't run at all. It will light but wont stay on when I let off the button. I'm thinking he needs a regulator, but I wanted some advice. He's got a regulator with a needle valve built in, but I think I might get a replacement regulator and a seperate valve. Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Tim

sounds like one of those pressure related deals.

Can you hook up a 1lb tank? If so, try that first. If it works, then there is an issue with the way the fuel is being delivered from the 20lb tank and not the heater.

Can only use the larger tanks with the hose he has on it.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
