Heater
#1
I'm plugged into shore power. When the heater is going is it using the shore power or propane?

Heater burns propane to produce heat.  Shore power only charges the batteries and supplies AC power to the wall outlets.
Heater fan motor uses battery power to run and blow the air out.
If you run out of propane you will have no heat.  In the event that you run out of propane, the heater will not produce any heat - but the heater fan might turn on and there will be no heat produced.

We keep a small electric cube heater aboard just for that possibility - does the job!

This is the small electric heater that I'm using - it tucks under the table when not in use.
Maybe not this particular one but similar.  As found on Amazon.
Silent, no fan, soft radiant heat.  Slow to heat the camper but comfy when it does.
