cold weather travel

Just wondering how most of you stay warm while traveling in the colder temps seems to get a little cold even with the aquatic hot furnace mode on

The furnace in my rig seems to be quite sufficient to heat up the entire space. Perhaps if you gave us a bit more information on your rig and furnace you could get a little more detailed help.

warm

Here are some threads where this has been discussed...

Cold Weather Travel

Heating While Driving

We put up a shower curtain behind the drivers area so we only have to heat the front.

When you are moving and the dashboard heat is on, the flow of air into the MH can force heated air to exit. If your dash heater controls allow it, try setting the air to "recirculate" which seals off outside air and see if there is any improvement. Also, look for any sealing problems around doors, windows, and slide-outs.

You can also check the output temperature of your house heater when still and when moving to make sure that it remains strong while in motion.

Using "recirculate" mode (if available) will make windows fog on the inside

Use the defroster for dash area heat if the windows fog.

I would think that the heated outside air would keep the moisture lower and create a positive pressure in the coach to limit incoming air from poor seals.

I've got a 40' Monaco with a propane furnace. When parked at freezing temps the furnace keeps the bays warm keeping the tanks and water system warm. If I'm driving in freezing weather I keep the furnace set high enough to kick on quite a bit to warm the bays. We have traveled in temps down to 20 degrees and were ok. We spent one winter parked in Vernal, Utah with temps to -20 and did ok. I'm not sure how or if the hydro systems do the bays.
