I am wondering if you can travel down the road with the furnace on? the engine heat/defroster will work at keep the front area somewhat warm but the back might be cold is this right or not. If a person wants to rest in bed it would get cold clear in the back.

The same with running your generator & house A/C in the summer.

On our vintage MH, I ran the house furnace plus the dash heat this am and almost cooked myself out. I had a T-shirt and a pair of jeans on and it was rainy and in the lower 40's. I also have a heater in the rear of the coach that has anti-freeze from the MH engine that has a fan that blows across the coil. Haven't tried that one yet. Of course I am sure it will be different come Dec when we head S to Tx. but I think we will be okay just add a sweater or a extra Blankie....
I also ran the gennie.

Don't forget to turn off the furnace before entering gas pump areas.

At this time of year we run with the furnaces on all the time. It's a motor HOME, and we keep it just as comfortable as our stick and mortar home when on the road.
