You may run the furnace when travelling but make sure your intake and outlet vents are not obstructed. It is imperative that they are free of obstructions as your furnace is designed to operated with ALL outlets free. To have them covered could result in a disaster.

To expand on what was said above. Our 2010 could because even though two vents were 1/2 covered when the slides were in I had added another vent. Our 2017 is for sure a no since all of the downstairs vents are covered when the slides are in.

Not comfortable doing that either as 2 vents in living area are completely covered. Only 1 in the living area plus bath and bedroom are open.

I personally would not tow with the furnace on. I would travel with tanks empty, and water lines drained. Road movement/bouncing would keep any trapped water from freezing.
