I would like to cover two of my heat registers that are under my main slide on my way to FL. I would still have three open registers one in the back,one in the bathroom andone inbedroom. Will the furnace still be efficient that way. Thank you

I would try it at home, the worst that should happen is the furnace will shut down from overheating. IMHO you will be all right. I cover 2 of mine to force more heat to bathroom area when traveling.

I have two adjustable registers (one in the living area and one in the kitchen) and from time to time have closed them both off to get more heat in the bathroom and bedroom. Never had an issue.

I also installed adjustable registers. One in the kitchen and one in the bath (got pretty warm in there before). Haven't had any problems, and it's a nice way to adjust/regulate the heat.

We often cover registers to force more heat into one room or another or to keep heat of of a room and have not seen any issues. This is the second TT we've done this on and so far so good.

Three Putt,

Do you travel with the heater running? Any pros or cons?

We're leaving right after Christmas from WI going to South Texas & wondered if I should wait until I get south before de-winterizing.

Any thoughts? Have 30ES 5er.

Thanks

We leave northern Illinois the first of January and don't de-winterize until we are well south and definitely in warmer weather. Have not run furnace while traveling. Have thought about starting it a couple of hours before stopping overnite just to take the chill off.

I run mine when going south on about 50. Been doing this for 4 years. This gets the frost out of the walls and camper comes up to temp much faster. Everybody I now does it.

While on a trip last January I inadvertenly left my furnace on and was pleasantly surprised with a warm welcome when we set up camp later that afternoon. Haven't seen any postings pro or con about running the furnace while traveling, but will probably do it again when it gets really cold unless I find out different.
