    Is this the first step to burning down the truck?

    I'm just not having the warm and fuzzy about the open flame in the sleeper.

    No different that in an RV.

    Also, I have this as my emergency heater. Should truck ever break down in winter...

    You leaving it on? I have one of those along with an elrctric skillet but the flame mostly cooks outside. It works fine.

    So you use it more like on the catwalk or something?

    I will use it both locations but unless the weather is miserable I am cooking outside. The burner is all that gets hot, not any of the rest of the unit.

    Unless you leave it out and start driving that thing is safe. I do remove the butane can when done. No sense in having a flammable gas leaking into the cab

    Dave, if you have an inverter, I would recommend a George Forman grill and/or an electric skillet. I have the grill and a crockpot with a locking lid. You can do wonders with that setup. I try to pre-package the meats into single servings with whatever marinade in the bag. Then I can freeze them and stock up the fridge and freezer before I leave home. An extension cord to the catwalk and you're the envy of the parking lot. I love the looks I get from the guys walking by with their bags of fast food.

    Oh, yes, you can cook your own corn dogs that way, too!
