I'm assuming your RT has the 750w TrippLite inverter charger and is wired like my adventurous despite different chassis. If so your inverter supplies limited 110v power to only the outlet in the kitchen, and an outlet for the tv/DVD. This inverter also provides a modified sine wave AC, which may not be tolerated by newer electronics. I have a lot of discussion in my thread on upgrading my inverter to a 1500w pure sine wave version.
When you get shore power or if you have a generator on, the 110 power to the tripplite is automatically directed to the two inverted outlets, and they then get pure sine wave power.
Your furnace needs 12v on to run. There are several basic reasons for it not to work. Probably an ignitor or thermal cutout. There is a 12v fuse for it that you should check. Does the fan run, but no heat, or nothing ?
Do you have the 3 way (12v, 110v, propane) Dometic fridge? Mine had a board issue that made it not run on propane. The fix was not too expensive, but compressor style fridges are available that some folks like better, though you lose the propane option. I also added auxiliary cooling fans that improved the absorption frudge performance. I have an extensive thread up on that too.
