The furnace comes out and goes back in quite readily - makes for lots of room. Leave the outside part alone, just take out the inside bits. Turn the propane and 12V disconnects off. A few screws, the gas connection, and watch out for the power and thermostat wires.

And while you are there you could add the extra door markvt put in.

Would you, in effect, disconnect those outlets from the converter feed?

I don't want to loose them when on shore power so I'm going to look at puting a DPDT switch by the converter so that I can have both functions. That would also eliminate the need to run new cable.

I *think* it just pulls out, I think mine was a bit stiff.

*Maybe* the screw by the gas valve at the bottom left?

Hi: MyronL... Did you disconnect the vent outside? Is that necessary for removal? Alf

Whoa up for a sec. Myron. If all you want to do is get power from under the dinette, curb side, can't you just send it over to the converter side, easy to do with that front panel there. Then remove the outlet wire from the breaker in the converter and send power to the outlet that way.

Or, are you going to split the receptacles, making 1/2 shore power and 1/2 inverter power?

Noo. And nooo. Sending wires via the street side from dinette (inverter) to below the fridge where a second duplex serving only DC will be placed. Alf, also nooo-- after consultations with Doug I was able to get the furnace out. Its exhaust vent tubes were a little stuck together in there, slipped apart after mild but firm persuasion.

OK, got it , a completely new duplex outlet serving only the inverter.

Just finished a big volunteer project today so I've got time now to pursue a similar project. I want my outlets, including the microwave one, to be dual purpose so I'm looking at putting in a simple transfer switch.

"firm persuasion" That's what I call my big hammer

Well I'm done for the night. Cut the hole for new electrical box just above existing factory duplex. This a tad tricky because of risk to nearby wiring. Reinforcement behind paneling made securing the box in the hole easy.

Used plumbers coiled spring steel on a reel to fish through chase and pull through new wires but no way I was able to do this without first pulling out the furnace. That was made difficult until 3 wires holding things back were disconnected.

Connected wires to the new duplex, and then to a 15 amp fuse block in the big brown fuse terminal under street side dinette seat. Multimeter in duplex showing 13.2 volts. But, no appliance will turn on when plugged in. Xantrex inverter has no terminals for auxiliary lines. You can only use the duplex outlets on its front face. Now what?

As stated, I'm done for tonight. I need rest.
