Running the furnace while towing

It's getting colder here, time to use the furnace.
I've read on other forums about people leaving their furnace on while towing. When you get to the CG, you're warm inside.
So, can I run my furnace of my Sabre 31RKTS whle driving to the mountains next weekend?

i've been on 5 RV forums for over 5 years and i've never heard of anyone running the furnace in their trailer while driving!

i have heard of motorhomes running the chassis' heater but that would be in any vehicle with an engine.

IMHO, it doesn't take that long to heat up if you really need it warm fast. i would never drive with the furnace going in my trailer.
when you pull into the campsite, start the furnace then and it'll be warm by the time you level, put the stabs out, unroll the awning and unhook the trailer.
