Winter Travel
« on: March 21, 2008, 08:25:41 AM »
We recently purchased a Lance 921 truck camper and are planning on doing some traveling out west. The question I have is we are going to be in Mexico one week and Jackson Hole the next, can I use the furnace while traveling to keep everything from freezing. Thanks Larry

RV furnaces are vented to the outside, so yes you can. Check periodically to see if the wind as you drive down the highway has blown out the flame, though. Some campers have a problem with this and others do not. The safety mechanism will shut the gas off if there is no flame, but your stuff might freeze.

Yes you can run it but make sure that you turn it off before pulling up to the pumps to fuel your vehicle.  Have seen a couple of tt and mhs that did not and kinda burnt to the ground.
