imo, Your convertor is putting out the 14 volts that you see, but when you use your lights and/or furnace the dead battery does not have enough juice to get them going to spects. For the furnace to run, the fan must come on first before the flames kick on. I believe that your battery is most likely shorted out. when you get a new battery, check your convertor output. If it stays at 14 volts for very long then you have a convertor problem. If this is not fixed, then you will burn up your new battery in a short time by over charging it.

You should consider joining the forum at Home - there are a ton of RV owners there who can help with non-FR branded stuff.
