You do know that the furnace heats with only propane only, right?
Not by electric heat.
The only thing plugging into the house does, is keep the battery charged for running the furnace fan and electronics.

The fireplace is 110 vac and will only work when the trailer has shore power. It has something like a 1200/1500 watt heater in it.

You may check the micro now if you wish, while plugged in to 110 just put a cup of water inside and nuke it for 60 seconds.
