2006 DSDP dash heat

I would be interested to hear if anyone else had had this problem, it seems when the outdoor temp drops below 20 F it is hard to keep the DW & myself warm. Any tips-tricks from anyone or anyone else experience this. Our coach has LP forced air furnace and simulated wood.

Dave the Evans unit may have a air control hose cracked or off the input its feeding to open the vent for heat or the control for full heat from Evans unit.
Do you have Heat Pumps because they will not work at the temp indicated and some coach's will AUTO operate your furnace which you need on to keep your holding tanks warm and plumbing from freezing.
Evans control valve information.
Evans wiring controls.
All these links can be found in QT's 1 & 2.

It is when we are on the road when we have trouble keeping warm.

Are you just running your dash vents for heat, if the blower or vents not open will not keep you that warm and you also need heat in the basement area for your tanks.
Glass windshield will let a lot of cold through into your seated area with out furnace on.

The dash heat will not be enough to keep you warm as it is also trying to heat the whole coach. You need to add a curtain behind the front seats to isolate you from the rest of the coach.

I had similar issues with heat/cooling control and come to find the hose on the vacuum pump was pinched right next to the pump. Corrected the pinched hose and now have lots of heat. This device opens and closes the air flaps in the heater plenum.
On mine it is located up front to the left of the generator. There is also a line that runs up to a vacuum bulb that slipped off due to its own weight. Tied it up to keep it in place.
