A192HW Gas furnace?

My wife and I are considering buying an A192HW. If we buy the optional gas furnace, does it replace the cool cat heat pump or do you get both? Our local dealer doesn't seem to know!
Thanks,
Joe in New Hampshire

We have both the furnace and the CoolCat, with the heat pump, in our T21QBHW. The heat pump won't work very well below around 40F so a furnace is a good idea IMHO. Our CoolCat is under our bed and the furnace is under the drivers side dinette seat.

Even though we have a furnace installed we use a electric space heater as it is a lot quieter. And since I'm already paying for electricity at a campground I might as well use it instead of our propane!

While sleeping in my A128:
First choice: electric heater with fan and thermostat if connected to shore power
Second choice: catalytic propane heater, quiet, requires no electric power, but has no thermostat
Third Choice: built in propane heater - very noisy, uses battery power or shore power, has thermostat
Fourth choice: cool cat heat pump - requires shore power, very noisy and vibrates, has thermostat but not effective if outside temp <40 F.

Sounds like the way to go.

never run the coolcat for heat below the recommended temps ... it will work too hard, and likely blow the system.
