We have three tents, 2 with the stove jack on top in front of tent and 1 with stove jack out side.  Nice thing about out side is that their are zero holes in tent after 25 years and we don't ever use a tarp or cover.  The one downside I find is that they don't seem to draft quite as well as the straight up ones.  They all burn hotter then hell but when turned down you get more smoke in tent with the side jack.  Also no water gets in on the side jack.  one of our tents has a few small holes from the top jack and it is only about 10 years old.

I bought the Lux Pro lights to give them a try, and we loved them.  I have 6 for my 16X20 and they were plenty bright.  The battery life only lasted about three days for us, but that was with a fair amount of use on their brightest setting.  I wasnt too worried about that, each only takes 4 AAA batteries, and not having the noise from the loud propane lantern was terrific.

how do you mount them?  sit them on the floor?

quiet would be nice.  although the heat from the propane lamps is nice...

When ordering our very valued wall tent from site sponsor  BRAVO Manufacturing had the stack placement conversation.  Hands down straight up to make sure you always have draft. Way to many negative issues with side wall termination and smoking out the tent. With the snow slide installed we have had no water leakage around opening.

The are magnetic.  They stick to your tent poles.  We used ours for the elk season this year.  We used them in the morning and for an hour or so at night before bed.  We used them for 8 days with the same batteries.  They work really well.  My guess is we have 20+- hours on original batteries.

They also have a hook that folds out so you can hang them as well. You can see it on the lft side in that pic.
I will just set mine on my cot side table.

A lot of lite, in a small package.

Well just back from 20 days in the tent and ran my mouse experiment again this year. (2nd Year) I put 24 hour mouse traps around our cook shack and caught 25 mice. And there still was some mice running around.

Both Canvas tents 100 ft away. Had cotton balls around them with pure Peppermint oil. No mice not one in either tent.

Did you have mousetraps in tent that had peppermint oil?

How many cotton balls to secure the perimeter?  Inside or outside the tent?

We got 28 in our cooking area, peanut butter roll can, and .410 shooting.🤣

One I shoot crawled off and when we took down the tent he was under the wall seam being eaten by his buddy.🤮

No traps inside.
Three balls per side.

Hint..when the bottle is empty seal it in a bag of cotton walls they will pick up the Oder.

I use barbed wire fence t-posts, I cut them to 18" and drill a hole in the top to hook my cargo ratchet straps to.
