Do I Need The Generator On?
Posted 09 November 2012 - 01:11 PM
Can anyone tell me if I can have the heat on in my Coachman with it just plugged in or does the generator need to be on?

If you have a propane heater you can run it without the generator on for a while. The fan is 12 volts and will run on your batteries. But you will need to start your generator from time to time to charge your batteries. I hope you put your coach up with full tanks so you can have enough fuel to get you through the storm. Hope you and your family are OK.

The only confusing part is that you mention you have no power so being plugged into something that has no power will not help!

You have no information on the type of RV you have. Year, model, etc., would help in the queries.
Newer model RV have heat pumps. The will run off of electric, but most likely would need 30 amp unless you have an electrical management system
