An RV furnace is a propane HOG!! One chilly weekend will consume an entire 20 lb tank of gas. Running a little heater of the campgrounds electricity is usually free.
For the cost of my recommended $20 heater, (see upthread) I have saved literally hundreds of dollars in gas, not to mention never ran out of gas on a trip and much less hassle getting my tanks refilled.
If it's really cold we will run the RV furnace to take off the chill and then maintain temps with the electric heater. Once in really cold weather we ran two heaters, passing a heavy extension cord out the slide seal to the pedestal for one of the heaters.
Saved a lot of money!
