Furnance question

I have my 5th wheel plugged in at the house utilizing an extension cord. I haven't winterized yet because we camped last weekend and have another trip (season last) next weekend. We are having a drop in temperature tonight and tomorrow night to approximately 33 / 34 degrees. Is it possible for me to run my furnace at a low temp inside since its only electric ignite and runs off propane?

I don't see any reason why you can't, but try to keep the extension cord as short as possible. I'd suggest you use one with 10 AWG wire too.

If you're worried about your water freezing, IMHO I don't think your water will if the only gets to just below 32 degrees for only a few hours. I've had water in my camper many times when the temp drops just below freezing all night without a problem. I don't doubt it would freeze if the temps stayed below freezing for a day or more...then I'd worry.

Your probably right I shouldn't worry about it but I'd hate to have a leak. I gave it a try and it seems to work just fine so at least I know. Thanks
