First, I agree with others that it helps to leave the A/C set to low overnight (we went back to Auto during the day).  And if you have full hookups (or are on a generator overnight) use an electric cube heater instead of the propane furnace.

I do like the grill and awning w/ light. Not enough to buy it, but I like the style. Somehow the design looks vaguely familiar.. Ha ha.
We do most of our cooking outside under the awning, so I could appreciate the grill. I'll just get another portable, no probs.

If you are using a full hookup site, invest in a Pelonis disc ceramic heater.  They have a thermostat, are very quiet & efficient.  We have noticed the furnace is rather loud also.  Haven’t slept with the a/c on yet.

Just a suggestion. When we need heat we use a small electric heater. Electricity is free at the camp site. Saves on gas. If we need a lot of heat then we use the RV heater. So far we have not had to use it. Turned it on once to make sure it worked. On the other hand we have not camped when it has been really cold.

We've camped in our R-Pod when the temperature was 4 degrees along with a significant wind chill. We had to use gas as we did not have electricity available initially and then we had electricity, but no electric heater. We stayed warm enough. At night, I turned the thermostat down and then in the morning, turned it up. We also have a Mr. Buddy Portable heater although at the time we had the Little Buddy which I returned because it was so top heavy that it kept tipping over. I ran that some in the morning to help heat things up. I made sure I had sufficient ventilation when doing so. I'm not sure how an electric heater would have done at those temperatures. Hopefully, I won't have to find out.

I'm a ceramic heater fan when possible, meaning pedestal power available, much quieter and serves purpose. I added a GCP1 pigtail to my Pod, mounted below the fridge on my 178 to allow an extension cord to bring power to another heater if required or other 120 devices, separate from Pod power.

My down comforter serves me well on cold nights on the Oregon coast.  No heater at night.  I've actually bought a tiny little 110v elec. heater/fan that is quiet and if terribly cold at night, warms the trailer on its lowest setting.  The regular rPod heater under the bed is just too noisy for me.
