We drive all over (Up Here) and never an issue.

Here is a link to the rules in Canada.

Only NFLD has a no propane policy in Canada according to the chart.

Provincial RV Regulations in Canada

We solve that problem by waiting to de-winterize until we are in the warmer weather. And then we re-winterize when we come back!

Early January, last year, I left Ohio and headed to Florida, and planned to stop in North Carolina for the night. About an hour away from Statesville, I turned on the furnace, just to take the bone-chilling coldness out of the trailer. That worked great, cause it was still very cold that time of year.

Since it was just me, I put some food and drinks in ice chests, so I didn't even bother with the fridge until I made it to Florida.

My only concern with running the furnace while driving is that many of my registers are covered by slides. I'm not sure what negative effects that may have on the slide bottoms or furnace system.

None of my registers get covered by the slides. And I did not dewinterize until the first night in the camper in January. But due to a truck breakdown I had to stop further north then expected and was held up for two days. So when I hit the road that afternoon is was around 20F and stayed that way till GA. But when I got to my final location and hooked up water, everything flowed first time.

Heat on the road

Maybe I've been wrong all along, but my LP is never on while going down the road. For the fridge or the furnace.
Our Dometic fridge runs on the truck connection while the truck is running, so yes I have to restart the fridge if I shut the truck down, but my understanding that the fridge only needs to run on LP when TT is un-hooked.
Correct me if I'm wrong...

Most of us only have 2 way fridges (110 or LP) not 3 way (110, LP or 12v). I'd love a 3-way, but I just can't afford one. So I run with my LP on for the fridge.

You are so right. There are not very many units with 3 way fridges anymore.
