I agree I would address all the wires first and see if it helps. If the furnace is running off the converter I would also check to make sure it's big enough for your system and working properly. I consider them to be a wear part in a camper and they fail periodically. When they die people often replace them with the cheapest thing that will work.

ITs actually 12 gauge, but that still may be too small.

When the converter is hooked to 120VAC the furnace works 100%. it blows twice as loud as when it's running on the battery, and it fires. This tells me the converter is doing well, and is converting AC to DC just fine.

When running on Battery power (no shore connection) the blower is about half as loud, and it will not fire the burner. I ASSUME this is because the slower blowing is not enough to trip the sail switch in the furnace, so the gas valve will not allow the burner to ignite.

what I'm trying to figure out is why there is not enough power from the battery.

You may have the voltage but not the amps. Larger input wire maybe??? Make sense to me. Something is causing a resistance either wire capacity (size) or the is a high resistance short in the wiring or connection.

I feel like the line that goes in to the converter from the batter (like the pigtail on the converter) is smaller than the 12 gauge running up to it. I'll have to check next time i open it up

Okay, I've gotta make a totally off topic comment really quick. I'm seeing TONS of people commenting on this stupid "knockout game" thing that's hitting the news saying stuff like "oh man, I hope one of these guys crosses my path while I'm concealing"... Really? What makes you think your gun is going to be of any help? These guys are pulling crap that's no different then someone walking up behind you and putting their gun to the back of your head and pulling the trigger. They're completely blind siding people that don't even have a chance to react so tell me how carrying your gun is supposed to help you? Hell, if anything when you're out cold and your shirt has pulled up as you hit the ground and exposed your piece, all it's going to do is give them the opportunity to steal your gun on top of being knocked out and hopefully that's all.

Can one of you EDC people please explain to me how carrying your gun is going to prevent this cause all I can see is that for it to be effective, you need to pretty much have it out every single time you walk past a person for it to be effective. In my opinion, you've got a better chance by having a friend or friends with you then you do carrying a gun cause if you're not solo, you're probably not going to be a target of this idiotic game.

Sorry but I'm just getting a laugh at all these EDC macho badasses that claim their going to get a shot off when they're likely going to be waking up with no clue as to what happened in reality if they cross paths with one of these MF'ers... I'm all for EDC and concealment but can someone please enlighten me on how it's going to help you if one minute you're walking and the next minute you're waking up on the ground?

I think you are right on with your logic. If someone blind sides you with a 2x4 it doesn't really matter what you are carrying. I would think a more intelligent response would be. Those d bags won't ever knock me out because I'm cautious.
I carry almost everyday because I work in crappy places. Even days I don't carry I'm fairly aware of what's going on around me. Even more so when I'm out with my wife. I don't carry and think, "oh I've got my gun I'm going to walk towards this group of young guys downtown with my wife."
I think the same goes for the argument people have with carry caliber. I really doubt the guy who is coming at me with a knife is worried whether I'm carrying a .380 or a .45. I think it will more likely be "**** that guy has a gun."

Oh, it's effed up! It's basically a game where people blindside others in an attempt to knock them out. In many cases, the victim is robbed afterwards. It's essentially a trending mugging!

And, like sturgio said, it's called being aware of your surroundings and not placing yourself in a situation to become a victim. Responsible people avoid possible conflict rather than confronting it.

Generally, I have a heightened sense of awareness when I carry. I'm aware of everyone and everything around me.

Still doesn't explain all these macho dudes that think they're going to shoot the dude before they're on the ground out cold... Gun or no gun, being aware of your surroundings is one thing, the gun isn't what's helping you do that. I'm just finding it really funny all the macho talk about this or that...

Haven't seen the macho talk about it here. Like you said, there's no gun that's gonna keep you from being knocked out. You have to be perceptive and be aware of your surroundings. It's just ignorance and people getting a god complex because they carry a gun. It's stupid and reckless. Unless one is highly trained, a gun I essentially useless at conversational distances. The aggressor can get their entire attack executed before the defender can even remove the gun from concealment! The point is to not allow a POSSIBLE threat to get that close, and that is achieved by being aware of and avoiding possibly dangerous people and situations.

Khris, its just because a lot of people are like you said, macho badasses. They are stupid and equate carrying a gun to having a bigger dick.

Its all about mindset, i am incredibly cautious and aware (when sober). I am constantly paying attention to who is coming towards be, ahead, behind, and what they are doing, same goes for sitting in a restaurant. I also always face the door.

I'm not paranoid or walking around in some crazy heightened state of tension, but I just pay attention to stuff. Has absolutely nothing to do with having a gun or not. I'm the same way with or without a gun.

Carrying does not make up for a lack of awareness, lol. I'm not gonna go down a dark alley on D street just because I have a heater on my hip.
