Yeah I plan to bring a battery powered carbon monoxide detector for this reason. I think the buddy heaters have a safety shut off when the 02 gets low but I might be making that up?
I looked at a vented propane stove another user had posted about here but I don’t think it’s in the cards this year tho it’s a great idea.

Any way to combat this? Was planning on using mine in my alaskan guide tent this year.One thing to realize is that burning propane creates water vapor. For every molecule of propane you burn, you consume 5 molecules of oxygen and you produce 4 molecules of water & 3 molecules of carbon dioxide. So from a 20 pound tank of propane you would produce 32 pounds of water (if I did my math correctly).
This water produced will increase any condensation issues. In a canvas tent, it is not that apparent, but it pretty much makes it rain in my ice fishing tent.
That tent is vented. It will be fine, I use to have one myself.
I'm still trying to figure out the whole venting thing. We camped in it a couple weekends ago in cherokee, nc. Some mornings I couldn't help but think my clothes felt a little wet. We were near a creek and it was humid so blamed that. Ima late hunter as an adult and tent camper. Thanks for the advice.That tent is vented. It will be fine, I use to have one myself.
At top of the tent there are vents that vent into the rain fly. If somehow that wasn’t enough crack a window but I never did have to.
