Furnace Blower Operation.

I'm assuming that the furnace blower operates on 12V and that I can use the furnace without AC power or generator on my 2012 Forester 3011DS!

We are heading out tomorrow (Florida) and I wanted to use the furnace in route.

Yes, runs on 12 volt. You may need it here in Florida, it's 35 here in Sarasota this morning. Forecast to get warmer during the week. High in the 50's today.

For a while. Furnace blowers are pretty energy hungry.

I have had a personal weather station set up for the past 15 years and I've got a lot to say about that comment but I'll just say this.
It is not Global Warming. It is Climate Change.

Well I'm sure with your 15 years experience you know a lot more about weather than I do. All I really know is it was cold in central Florida this morning. I just go by the thermometer not my weather station.

Actually not too bad in the grand scheme of things. If they are using it while driving they will be fine, the alternator will keep the batteries topped up.
