Agreed Dave.
My furnace is loud inside.
I can't hear and it wakes me up everytime.
Outside is very low noise.

I would say ours is comparable to the water heater, maybe a tad louder when you're standing 20' away, inside is a different story.
Having said that, why not pack a small electric oil filled heater - provided you're in a power site, frost shouldn't be an issue at this time of year.

We run an edenpure on low to keep it warm and only use the furnace to take off the initial chill. Electric is cheaper than propane.

Agree with ox.

We have had three campers and they all have loud furnaces and A/C units. The furnace problem is solved by using the small ceramic electric heaters which are cheaper and allow you to actually sleep. Electric is included in the rental in many campgrounds so the small auto heaters have another advantage. I have been wondering for years why the RV industry does not address the noise issue. I am sure it has something to do with money and profits.
