running the heat?

Our TT was winterized, however, I want to turn the heat on in the camper while I'm in there doing some work. Will running the heat impact anything since its winterized or no?

(I know it may be a dumb question, but I just want to be sure)

Everything will be OK.
Several months ago we had new carpet put in the house.
I plugged in the TT, turned on the gas for heat and watched a few movies.

Are you plugged into shore power? If so, no problem.......if not, you'll be using up your battery to run the furnace (blower and igniter use 12v). The furnace uses no water whatsoever. Good luck on your mods.

As said above - it's all A-OK as the furnace and heating system don't use water.

Run the heat all you need then.
Turn on the radio for some tunes.
Good luck with your work.

Oh.....turn on the fridge to keep the beer cold and crank up the antenna & watch the game. Might as well tell the DW you'll be back in a few days.

If you're plugged into the house, why not use an electric heater, rather than your propane?

That's true.
Got a cost per BTU?
I like the unit warm, if I was in a certain space to do a task then a space heater would be good.
