We do it all the time. It's designed to run while underway.

Only issue with operating RV furnace while in transit is IF floor registers and/or furnace return air are blocked by slideouts etc.
Furnace then could cycle on/off due to overheating from lack of proper air flow

Otherwise run it...

Sure. We usually run the generator & use the electric heat since those output vents run down the center of the coach, they aren't restricted by the slides being in like the propane ones are.

We did it in a 92 Fleetwood Pace Arrow. We also run the furnace while driving out 07 Fleetwood Discovery so you should be able to run your furnace in your "American Coach"
