Can you use coach heater when driving down the road
Depends on definition of 'winter'....

Morning frost.. lows near 30... warming during day...
I'd have minimal concerns if running heater inside. Would likely disconnect any external water connections (city water) at night.

If getting into low 20's - would start getting more concerned about external drain lines... adding antifreeze to holding tanks to get down there...
Your RV will be consuming propane at a rapid rate.

Below that I would be treating the RV as not having water... Fully winterized and drained - and use bottled water and external facilities...

I've certainly been in the 'morning frost' category... and woken up to 4-6 inches of snow on the rig (Christmas in Arkansas - go figure considering we left from Michigan!).

YES - you can run your heater/furnace - or for that matter ANY onboard appliance while on the road.. Obviously needs propane on (and you will get different opinions on that - but many do so...)

Just my opinion... worth what you pay for it..
Not yet retired...
