suburban furnace

I am planning a trip south and hope that we can find enough year round campgrounds so we can hook to electric for the night. My questions is how long will the furnace run on battery power. I know it will depend on outside temps but hope to be able to take the chill off our 8282 ws fifth wheel

With minimal battery usage before dark and only 1 or 2 lights till bedtime; a single OEM battery should still last the night. Beyond that, you will need a second battery and a way to recharge them during the day.

Depends on the condition of the battery, but one night is okey usually.. Checking battery voltage with a good multimeter is a good idea. And trying it out before is a good idea.

Take an extra blanket and don't worry for one overnight stop.
They are plenty of campgrounds no matter where you drive.
Just plan your trip out before you leave.
