Might need to spend some time in our Rv this winter, and may not have a place to plug into shore power. Can I run the furnace with battery power only. Or, would I need to get a generator? Thanks
I'm in Arnold MO (South side of St. Louis) and camping at St Francois State Park near Bonne Terre MO. I heard great things about RV Eagan. I bought mine from Byerly RV in Eureka MO. Their service and techs are pretty good, great delivery experience. Sometimes race (dirt bike Hare Scrambles) near you in Eugene MO and other land around there.Good luck and report how it went please. Where in MO if you dont mind saying. We are in California MO and will be picking up our Valor 41v15 on Thursday from RV Eagan!
A small inverter generator like a 2000 would come in very handy and are pretty quiet and easy to carry. These would work for charging and power most things 1 at a time besides the A/C.We are hoping to move to SE Ohio in a few weeks. Plan to spend a few nights in the RV up there, while we are getting settled into the house. Do not yet have any plug there, for shore power. Sounds like I might need to hook up to the pickup and recharge the batteries on the RV every day, for a hour or so. We willl be able to use the bathrooms in the house, so water is not a problem.
Our 42v13 did not have the "hot" wire connected from the pigtail to the trailer, so therefore no 12v from the truck while driving.A small inverter generator like a 2000 would come in very handy and are pretty quiet and easy to carry.

I’m not sure how much charge/amps you’ll pull from the pickup 7pin connector. This hasn’t been noticeable amount of charging for me in the past.
