If so, can you answer a question for me?
Remember the old style little white 'bathroom heaters' than ran off butane? Well, I got one over the weekend that someone was throwing away; still worked fine. I was thinking of hooking it up to a propane tank and using on a deer stand (box blind). Can this be done? Is it acceptable to connect propane to what has always burned butane, and if so, what kind of connection kit is required.

I don't think it would work since it's set up to burn butane. Not sure though.

Need to go to a plumbing supply house and get a new orface for it so it will burn clean and eliminate carbonmonoxide from un burned fule. Do not use it with propane untill you do this. It will work but is very dangerous. You don't want to not wake up in your stand.

Everything would have to be set up for propane. New orifices, regulator, gas valve, etc. would have to be set up for propane.

Because of the volatile qualities of propane, I would not recommend if in fact it could be done.

I don't think you would be able to do all the above.
