Most gensets don't get run enough. If it's a matter of comfort, we run ours.

If it's a really hot day we run the genset and heat pump and keep the entire coach cool. It takes a long time to cool it down once it get really warmed up.

Our gas furnace will run just fine without the genset. We also run it going down the highway if it's needed to keep the coach warm.

Do what you want. It takes so little fuel that I hardly notice it.

We have travelled in both very cool and very warm temperatures and not had to use extra heating or cooling while traveling.

We have tried using the aqua hot once, just to see if it worked. It did.

I travel solo so I only have myself to contend with. If itís cold I put on a jacket and leave the location for warmer weather. If itís hot I take off my shirt and drive topless. I only use my generator when boondocking or once a month to excersize it.
