Marcel...there are two different ways to heat the coach. Do you have it on "furnace" where the heat comes from the lower heat vents..or is it coming from the "Heat Pump" cycle where the heat comes from the roof vents?

I would think it would be in the power circuit.A bad connection most likely a ground or neutral.You stated it blinked the lights when you turned on the furnace. Therefore the furnace must be linked to the problem.Ck the neutral at the furnace connection.

Your lights and furnace are powered by your coach batteries (12 volts) so first check the charge on your batteries when you check your tank levels. If you had to start your generator, which powers your coach battery charger, it may mean your batteries and battery connections need to checked.

As far as losing your power when connected to shore power, your lights may dim a little but should never go off IF YOUR COACH BATTERIES ARE OKAY.

I would not only check the coach battery charge but also check the water level in each cell of each battery, which needs to be done on a regular basis. I service mine every other month.

Also check the water level in your batteries. If low that could be your problem. Only put distilled water (available at Wal-Mart) in the batteries. Do not fill to the top, but to the bottom of the fill hole.

Marcel..
I think the guys here are on the right track with the batteries. You should also have the wiring checked in the electrical panel in the back bedroom area for lose wiring.
Good Luck

Start with your coach batteries (water in each cell, charge state, and clean/dry battery cable connections). If these battery items check okay, then disconnect the coach from shore power for an hour or two to test your batteries under normal coach load. Your coach batteries are the best place to start checking.

I had the same problem when ours was new? It sat on the lot for a year.. The Batteries were bad. The Dealer replaced them. He also had to replace the inverter, Charger was bad. Maybe your problem also.

My first suspect would be the large contacter located in the electrical compartment below the drivers side. The so called salesman switch near the door that disconnects the coach batteries for storage, etc. operates this large contacter. These contacters are famous for getting hot and making poor connection. I had my coach go completely dark while connected to shore power because of the contacter. All the lights in your coach are 12 Volts DC and if the house batteries are discounted you will have no lights.

I bypassed my contacter with a large conductor and permanently removed it from the circuit.

I also bypassed this contactor after having it replaced under warranty, but they're usually either ON or OFF and nothing in between. When it fails, it fails OFF and you would have no lights and no way to get your lights ON unless you bypass or replace the contactor. Below is a photo of the contactor in the Driver's Side Electrical Panel that we're talking about called the House Power Relay:

Marcel, I had the same problem last xmas. Go to an auto parts store and purchase an 80 amp continous duty 4 pole switch. I looks like the relay (contactor) in Camelot's picture. You can remove the plastic covering on the existing unit and use the front piece to provide a replication of the HR connections. Mine is working like new and hasn't caused me any problems.
