furnace problem in my 72 Holiday vacationer

First of all thanks to the people that responded to my first problem.
I changed the thermocouple and now the pilot stays on like it should but now when i turn the thermostat up I can hear it wanting to turn the furnace on but the burner I guess you would call it inside the furnace and the blower do not want to kick on. I have the camper hooked to 110 but one thing I was wondering is does the 12 volt battery have to be connected also to complete the 12 volt circuit? I'm assuming the furnace is 12 volt.

I would not want to run a 12 volt circuit w/o a battery being attached. I know the converter will put out 12 volts but that said I think that having a battery in the circuit is the way to go.
