It isn't safe to run down the road with a heater running on the coach. Go with the gennie and the electric heater for safety.

Why - I think you will find out that most people run the heater as required when driving. What is your fridge on while driving? Just curious,

Strongly disagree. Unsecured electric heaters are much more dangerous. RV furnaces are designed to be operated in-motion.

My fridge will hold its temp with a little loss but nothing great. If we're running the gennie for the roof AC's then the fridge is cooling. If we don't need the AC's then the fridge isn't in a hot environment.
