We spent a couple of weeks during the Christmas break running around Texas. Ran the furnace both weeks and kept coach temperature around 70 F. Even when temps dropped down to low 20's near Dallas the furnace had no problems keeping the coach warm and at temp. Did have to fill propane after about 12 days of constant use. Only used dash heat to keep feet warm up front and windshield clear. Based on our experience you should not have any problems however if you have experience with one rv...you have experience with one rv. You might have a different experience. By the way, I did keep an eye on the black/grey tanks by putting the wireless thermometer that is synced with a weather station in the wet bay. Even when outside temp dropped to 23 F the wet bay never dropped below 39 F. Probably due to interior temp at 70 F

From Columbus Ohio - the cold spell is only 3 days. I would wait those 3 days and travel when night time temps are 25 to 30 instead of 11 and 8 degrees. That would make the most sense to me.

if you dont want to run the propane furnace while your driving , run the generator and run the electric heat. if you dont have an electric furnace as well as a propane just get a couple space heaters and plug them in. wish i was going south as well. its 30 below celcius tonight here in muskoka

The cold spell will be over in a few days. Next Monday and Tuesday the highs in central Ohio will be upper 40's with lows in the low 30's. It will stay above freezing for about 3 or 4 days. If you are still in Canada I would get ready to travel Sunday. If you are now in Dayton I would like to hear how things when.

It was cold in Dayton but the furnace did its job and kept us warm. The batteries lasted through the night. Now we are in Dalton Georgia waiting out a freezing rain storm.
Thanks for all the replies.
