There are no combo models that I am aware of.
It is better to add a battery, univolt etc, and have the benefits of running self contained.
If you have a furnace that operates on city power only, then should that power fail, your going to get very cold.
I know this is an old thread, I'm just trying to clear up the answer in my mind about getting a new furance. I have a '61 Overlander that has both 110v and 12v
power, each light fixture has two lights, 110v & 12v
. The three fans (roof vent, stove vent, and furance) each have one switch (labeled "city power/battery power") that runs the fan on either 110v or 12v
. The roof vent fan has been replaced with a Fan-Tastic Fan and I replaced the stove vent fan motor with a 12v motor. Both of these now work on 12v only. The old stove vent fan motor had "AC/DC" stamped on it.
1. Was there a transformer and/or conventer for each of these fans to run on either 12v or 110v?
2. Is this technology/part still available? I know I could not find a new motor that was "AC/DC".
3. Is there any way to get a furnace with a fan that will run on both 110v and 12v? Or, is it like the other two fan motors, only 12v is now available?
