Yep, my furnace also gets too hot to hold your hands (or feet) in front of. This is normal. I think mine is 16,000 BTU so that is a lot of heat coming out of that little opening. It warms the van up pretty quickly too. Just wish it didn't cool off so fast but I am not tearing it apart to add more insulation.

I got a custom made windshield sunshade that is reflective on one side and dark non reflective on the other side. When cold I put the reflective side in. That and reflectix on the windows does well to help hold heat in. Just can't see out. When down for the night, I have an insulated curtain (Walmart) that hangs behind the cab area. I put the pretty side to the front and the white side to the back for light reflection. I also use the curtain at Walmart and such.

100w panel is charging nicely,sun doesn't hit it until 9-10 o'clock and at 11 the controller is showing high 90's charge % so a 300-350w panel on the roof should get me by,will be adding a fridge and tv so maybe double up the battery

Sounds mild to me.........

Funny how that works isn't it?  20 and above is outside work for me during the winter months in Maine.
Just kidding.
At 70* the joints and lower back start to ache.
At 50* Out comes the wool and then the down at 40*.
At 20* I just want to sit in front of the heater..
At 0* and below I actually do just sit in front of the heater

At 80* the pains start to subside.
At 90* almost there......
95* I'm cured !
