Default Coleman burner

I recently discovered a gentleman in Iowa that can repair the burner on the Coleman focus 5 heater. He has a listing on eBay for $40.00 with free shipping or you can mail him your old burner at eklb@mchsi.com for the same deal. I chose to send him my old burner because I have electronic ignition.

That's great news. I have two Focus 5 heaters and will pick up a spare burner. These are without a doubt the best shanty heaters ever made. IMHO

I'll agree with you on this one. Best I have ever used. Now all I need to do is get another.

WOW! I knew there was a reason I held on to mine for so long. It crapped out on me about six years ago and has been sitting in the back of the shop. Ive tried others but that is the best ive found. I think it fried one to many pieces of bacon on it in the duck blind. Worked great for toast too.
