New Flying Cloud 25 Furnace question

So far I have not needed it, but as colder temps are coming ,does the furnace run on battery power if AC unavailable?

Yes, your furnace fan will runs off battery power when not plugged into shore power. However, if it gets really cold and runs a lot during the night it will deplete the batteries, so you'll need a generator to replenish batteries in the morning.

FYI, if you deplete your batteries by running your furnace overnight, it may also affect your water pump, refrigerator and anything else that uses 12-volts for control purposes.

If you deplete your batteries below 12v you will shorten the life and the capacity. Purchase a multimeter to check the voltage at the batteries. You have a SeeLevel monitor panel. I looked up a SeeLevel document and it should show the volts. You can compare that with the multimeter reading from the batteries. If there is a load on the 12v system there may be a difference between what the SeeLevel shows and a multimeter testing right off the battery posts.

Don't forget to turn the furnace's thermostat to a lower temperature or completely off while traveling. I've forgotten this a few times and used up a lot of propane.
Also, you do not want the fridge or furnace running on propane while at a fuel stop.
