Running Damon furnace while driving

Hey all,
We have a 2004 Damon Challenger 353. Wondering can that run the furnace while driving? We were coming back this weekend from NC and it was very cold out. The dash heater cranks out heat but my grandson was in the back and I wanted to keep warm for him. It didn't seam like the furnace was running. Again I was driving so hard to really tell. And when I stopped it was not blowing of course it could have just been in a cycle. Anyone know on this model?

Also let me add it is away for the winter now so this is not something I'll need to do a lot but I'm more wondering if I'm in the situation can it.

Moth grey: see my post below on improving cockpit heat. Many people comment on using the furnaces while driving. This might help you out.

This is something I don't quite understand. The issue has been discussed here and in other threads.

You have a motor HOME. The operative word there is HOME. You wouldn't heat only part of your stick and mortar home, would you? So why would you even consider heating only part of your motor home?

RUN THE FURNACES! Be comfortable!
