Heater

My wife and I usually camp at places that have full hook ups. In mid April 2015 we plan on making a trip to Mt. Rushmore going thru Yellowstone. I understand there is only 1 camp ground in Yellowstone, Mammoth, open year round, with others opening in May. At Mammoth there are no hook ups, but you can run your gen. between 0800 and 2000hrs. Would I be able to run our heater at night on the house batteries? Would they be dead in the morning? If anyone has been in that area in mid April and has any tips I would love to hear them.
Thanks
Steve

In my expeiance an "electric heater" NO!
However, running your "LP furnace" should be no problem.
I do it often when boodocking or overnighting at a Walmart. etc.

How many batteries do you have? Do you have residential refrigerator?
