Not if you are using the diesel burner.
You can keep the entire coach warm by using
the AH while driving.

Generator not needed. The AH hear exchangers operate on 12vdc. Check to see if your AH is equipped with an engine coolant loop. This enables the AH to provide pre heat to the engine and also use the engine to provide heat to the AH. If you have this then you don't need to run the diesel burner while underway.

Same here. Turn the thermostat to heat, set the temp and roll down the road with the engine keeping everything warm.

A very nice feature when traveling in cold weather. DW likes all the free heat when going down the road.

My AH has the three switches noted...Diesel Burner, Electric, and Engine Preheat. The Preheat is just that, it will preheat the engine for starting in cold weather. However, I've never used it since I'm always plugged in and use the plug in feature to warm the engine. My electric plug in for the preheat is in the basement with the power cord. Anytime you are running, the engine will be making hot water for use in heating or for water use in the coach...it is not necessary to turn on the Engine Preheat. If it is not too cold, it will warm the coach when driving, with, as noted above, free heat. However, we discovered last week, when it was 8 degrees, we had to run the Diesel Burner to keep the heat coming, just calling for heat on the thermostat would not keep the coach warm with that low of an outside temperature.
