I may be wrong since I have not had the chance to read the manual on the furnace. I have a 2013 Georgetown.
Your furnace is run and ignited by 12v DC battery power.
Shore power simply recharges the battery through the converter.

Thanks for the reply. I guess it's good to know in case you are isolated on a cold night where you didn't want to run to auxiliary.
