I will have a battery powered co2 detector on at all times for safety's sake.
A forum search didn't turn up much on the subject of off-grid cabins, so if warranted perhaps a new thread can be started? I would be interested in anyone's tips and experiences.

Next trip up in 2 weeks if possible.

bobrook ,
We gave up on tinkering with the older propane 'fridges . Got a new one in the early '90 s. Very efficient and reliable. They don't give them away ( $1K+) but if you can put it on an outside wall they will breath in and out from outside.
Most any gas stove can be converted to propane as well.
