+1 on the 12VDC lap throw... It also saved me the cost of adding heated seats for the DW...

Hang an extra blanket over the opening to the cab. The cab has little or no insulation.

Be sure your batteries are fully charged before you go to bed. The furnace uses about 7 amps. Ours runs about 1/3 to 1/2 of the time keeping the coach at 70 when it's 30 outside.

When recharging, it takes several hours to get a full charge. After only a hour the convenience panel will show four lights after the generator has been turned off, but this is misleading. The shows a "surface charge". It takes longer for the battery plates to become charged throughout.

Correction: This shows a "surface charge".

FYI, a 30,000 btu/hr furnace uses about 1.5 pounds of propane per hour of run time.
