Furnace - Heat Pump?

It is just cold enough (28) that I want to have the heat from the furnace to get into the wet bay. I turned on the front furnace, but I left the rear heat pump on. It did not get into the low 30's until after midnight or so.

Is this OK to do it this way? My heat pumps work good down into the mid 30's. My motorhome is at home and closed up. I drained my low points and my water tank, but I just wanted to make sure nothing froze in the wetbay.

I've pretty much done what you're doing. But, I just put a small ceramic heater in the wet bay. There's probably a 110v recep in there anyway.

I keep my motor home at my house too.

I normally do this, but I forgot about it getting real cold until it was late. It will only be real cold for one night, but I will find my heater for the next time. I do not have an outlet in my wetbay, but my wetbay is parked right beside my power pole. I run a short extension cord into the wetbay with thermostatic controlled outlet.
