I was thinking that if the lines were there I might use them to add an axillary heater for the coach. I am hoping to use the Georgetown for ski weekends and thought that it would help me conserve propane while traveling in the winter using the axillary heater while moving instead of the furnace. I did a similar thing in a van I owned in the early 80's. I won't be able to do it any event until the winter is over. There seems to be no easy way to see the back of the water heater and I don't really care to be crawling around underneath the unit in the snow.

BTW there are several systems in the motorhome carrying poisonous materials. The ammonia in the fridge is particularly lethal.

Exactly Mike. I have had the aux heaters in the past and they work well. Forest River does not run the lines as far as I know but it is easy to put a T in the line coming from the rad and then running it to a heater..then back to the rad .Good luck...and you are correct, the ammonia or carbon monoxide from the furnace would do you in long before a little anti freeze on your corn flakes...LOL...
