At home I have the '05 Dolphin hooked up to a 15 Amp circuit...Will this run the furnace without any issue...nothing else running at present...as near as I can determine I need about 6 amps...but thought I would double check...

15 amp circuit should be more than adequate for the furnace to operate.

Gdlow,
The furnace runs off the 12 volt DC side of the converter / charger .

Also, watch where you have the power share set. Your battery charger could demand enough amps along with the DC furnace to blow that little 15 amp recepticle. Mine does if I forget to set it.

We have a 99 Tradewinds. The rear furnance is wired into the chassis batteries. (for cold weather camping) If yours is this way, remember that when you set the power saver on 20 amp, it turns the charging off to your chassis batteries.
