Also, a 12V heater uses WAY too much power and is not as efficient as 120V or LP.
Also, run it on LP going down the road. Do you drive unlevel? No. So it won't hurt anything.

Leading up to getting my new rig, I have decided to get a 120/12 V chest type refrig/freezer to keep in the truck. I will use some of my many blue ice packs to cool down the TT frig. The chest units have a quick freeze function, which will aid in cycling the ice packs. As a fisherman, I have a few large coolers that I use on the boat. I will be doing quite a bit of boondocking, and have a Honda I-3000 Eu to run whatever I want. Out here we have lots of tunnels & bridges, so the only stuff in the rv fridge will be blue ice & food when underway.

These propane fridges use so little propane that it isn't a problem. What you need to do is think about getting a small electric heater to cut down on the time the furnace runs. That's the propane hog.
