    Wondering if while connected to shore power does that power the blower for the furnace instead of the battery?

    The 12v side of the converter should power the blower when connected to shore power. It should also be charging your battery.

    And it will power all the DC devices in your camper.

    On our pup, when we are connected to shore power, it powers the blower on the furnace, but the furnace heater runs on propane.

    Shore power powers the convertor. Your furnace fan is 12 volt which comes the battery/convertor
