Using Furnace While Driving

Like most everyone else I use my gen set while driving primarily so I can use my A/C. Never had a problem and don't expect any. Now I'm wondering if I can do the same for my furnace. I have dual propane and electric furnace but I think I'd rather use the electric side.

How do people keep their RV's warm while heading down the road in cold weather?

We use the gas/propane furnace-never had any problems with the flame blowing out.

If its cold outside I use the dash heater and gas furnace which keeps my holding tanks underneath from freezing up, waste of gas to run Gen in winter just to heat.
During winter travel furnace is on all the time been in 1* temps while traveling no problem everyone is cozy.

I would have LOVED to do th at last Jan-2 but alas could not due to faulty control board on furnace.. Have done it in the past.

Oh, replaced board (With Dinosaur Boards Fan-50), works 100% now.
