LTRVD0343 Heating Your RV

Be A Workamper

The main theme of this show is heating your RV. We discuss RV furnaces and some great alternatives to keep you warm and toasty without breaking the bank for propane.

After answering so really good mail questions, we move on to some great Christmas gifts for your favorite RVer from Eric and Tami Johnson of TechnoRV. I wish someone would give us some of these.

Eric finishes up with a list of common maintenance items for any RV.

After a word about the upcoming RV Training Triad webinar presented by Mobile RV Academy and Workamper News, Inc. You can register for a seat at this Tuesday evening November 24th webinar, go to

Next, John starts by discussing how an RV furnace goes through the sequence to get it to light and maintain heat and what makes it stop working properly. Then we get into vent-free propane heaters for heating your RV and the different types and their features and costs. We think this is the way to go to stay warm in your RV during these cold winter months.
