Although the cause of most non-interior AC receptacles not working is a tripped ground-fault receptacle in the kitchen or bathroom that they are daisy-chained off of, RV furnaces usually only require 12 volts. Are you getting nothing, not even fan, or just no heat?

I get nothing, I checked thebGFCI and the light is green.I don't have my battery hooked up because I use my generator or camp ground power. Ny electric winch which is a pre ice crap messes with my battery so I replace the winch with a manual one .

No battery? You can blow out your converter using it without a battery hooked up. Reccomend you install a battery. Converters mainly charge the battery. The battery is what takes the load of the 12 volt appliances. Are your sure your converter did not trip or blow its main fuse? Are your sure you are getting 12 volts to the trailer cause the furnace will not do anything without 12 volts. Check the fuses on the converter itself. There are almost always 12 volt resettable breakers mounted at the battery location. Some furnaces do have a main fuse or a reset breaker that could have tripped. It may not be mounted in plain sight either. Worst case it could be the control board or the sail switch within the furnace that has failed and need replacing.
