I use elect. heaters when I have hookups as do a lot of folks here. Maybe you can find a store to buy one or borrow one in a campground until you can get one or two and get your heater working.

Given the total lack of information in your post, I haven't a clue as to what might be wrong. What brand furnace, model number, coach, and what are you talking about removing some hose, what hose.

It would seem to be an overheat situation. That duct work shouldn't be anywhere near melted. I suspect blocked ducts or something sitting in front of the registers. Furnace went into overheat and shut down. Does it start back up when cool.

Yes, the Heater will come on but the smell would drive you out of the motorhome.

I agree: start looking for blockages in the ducting
Good luck!
