    Saw this on good old YouTube and was impressed at the idea :)

    The guy in the video uses it to heat his small office, or boat when he's away, so if it's good enough for a boat, then maybe it'll be useful for my fellow Funsters too :)

    Only Tootles, not plastic flowerpots ok ;)

    I haven't watched the video but I did see it on the "pillock who's re-designing his boat" programme where tea-lights are used with inverted plant pots to create a heater so I guess that's what you're on about. Apart from the cooker/oven/grill and space heater (convection type) there should NEVER be any flame in a motorhome for any other purpose as it is all too easy to have a mishap.
