No need to put the jacks down, just pull the low side tires (hopefully the ones against the curb or not facing the street) up on a couple small pieces of wood. Hopefully you won't see them too well, and it's only a short-term solution. Do you have anywhere to hide the cord? I have a green one that I could hide a lot of places

But as was said, it doesn't sound like the furnace cares about level...?

The dreaded "protective" covenants (or local law) that serve to limit our freedoms.

I live in the woods where things like this aren't restricted but a number of years ago the city of Friendswood Texas kicked us out of our buddy's driveway. He was really upset but we just moved on down to the park at Galveston and drove back up to visit.

We just aren't that free any longer......

We have an HOA as well and the first week we had our TT we left it out front while I got it setup, etc... Anyway sure enough got a nice little "Reminder" card in the mail the next week...

I just threw it away.. First off in my location they have to send a notice out, if you don't do anything they send a nasty letter, after that a certified letter, then if you don't respond you get served..

However, It is a public street.. The HOA really doesn't have a legal leg to stand on... They would have to get the city involved...

Anyway, that is my situation, don't know if you have that much leeway, if so then just take the chance... Maybe call them and tell them your situation and you are aware of the bylaws and you will move it ASAP..

I have had to send them nasty letters back before.. They try to pop us for the stupidest things.. They once told me I had weeds when they were just Lillis that hadn't bloomed yet.. The little note card said something like "I case you didn't notice the RV parked in front of your house needs to be removed.. I cracked up at that and almost sent them another little note back saying. "NO, A 30 foot long, 8 foot wide and 9 foot tall box in front of my house was a little bit hard to not notice.. But I didn't... Should have though...

Most HOA's are run by members who are BUSY BODIES and have nothing better to do.

I refuse to live in any subdivision with one and the Ohio Supreme Court many years ago overruled local zoning by saying "it can be in my driveway even in front of the house" which is isn't.

Downside of running the space heater: Furnace runs less, pumping less warm air into the cold air spaces… more chance of freeze up with the space heater.
