WE have done it on several occasions while traveling in COLD temps.

Enclosed underbelly stayed warm...water lines stayed warm & inside of 5vr was warm while setting up.

No harm/no foul---all good!


Hot summer time...we run A/C Unit while traveling


Is it time for your medication or mine?

For OUR RV, we don't need to do that, it will heat up very fast.. Usually by the time I am done setting things up and scanning the TV, we are getting warmer....

We just turn on the LP heat AND the electric fireplace..all is good !

What are the odds you're at the sprint car national finals in Charlotte?
They got qualifying in before the rain!

Nope, the Redwood was dropped at the dealer yesterday for a small list of warranty items to complete. Been making a list since we got it in May..

The last thing being done is the pink stuff will be added [emoticon]

What about running the furnace with the slides in. I ask because if I am stored at home in the winter, I would rather have the slides in if freezing rain or snow, and keep the water lines from freezing. It only usually freezes at night here where I live.

It’s not what you’ve done that commands respect, it’s what you do.

When my slides are in two out of three vents are almost completely blocked off by the slides. I will not turn on the heat unless all the vents are open 100%.

Thanks everyone. I think I will probably stop about 30 minutes before my destination Friday and start the furnace to knock off the chill before I get there.
This is what I do if towing below 35F. But only if safe and convenient.

My slide only covers one vent 50% and even then I might wedge something under the flap of carpet so it can breathe. Other four vents are always clear.
