Ok, I recently purchased my 1995 tiffin from my mother in law. Getting cold for the first time and I went out tonight and could hear a vent blowing. It's actually the one on the passenger side around where the passenger seat is but lower on the outside. Blowing warm air through the vent. Do I have something on or does it do this on its own? Camped for the first time sat night. Coach battery was dead this afternoon. Thanks in advance this will be one of a hundred questions I'll have in the next month or so I'm sure!

Sounds like you have a furnace on. Check your thermostat and make sure it is off.

Relax, the heater is working, refill propane, and plug the coach in. Turn heat down to 50.

Check water level on batteries, refill with distilled water.

You either need to winterise rig, or go south.

Likely you have 2 furnaces, the vent you hear is the exhaust for the front furnace. The floor grates will be behind the seats and in the dash. The thermostat will be on a wall nearby. And yes, the furnace will kill the batteries overnight.
If you have the dual furnaces, the second thermostat will be in the bedroom and will have several floor vents. This furnace should also supply basement heat to help the pipes from freezing.

It is the front furnace I bet. My thermostat settings for the furnace is located just above and behind the passenger seat. I set each furnace from the one thermostat (zone 1 or zone 2)
