Not if the furnace exceeds 5000 watts.

A 1000 watt generator cannot run a 1500 watt ceramic heater without having problems.

You can find a 5000 watt generator by looking online through www.ebay.com or through www.craigslist.com. When you purchase online you can have it shipped to you and sometimes score free shipping.

yes

5000 (watts) /120 (volts) = 41.6 amps , but to be safe you should allow 1000 watts margin for peaks, so 4000/120 is 33.3amps, although peaks might sometimes get higher than 5kw

Yes, 1000 watts represents the conversion of 1000 Joules of energy each second, so it does not depend on the type of machine.

Not really. A 2000W generator will give you about 10 amps. Your normal RV air conditioner will draw 12-15.

not gega watt ,it is gaga watt , you have to start from 1 watt 1000 watt = 1 k watt 1000 000 = 1 mega watt 1000 000 000 = 1 gaga watt example : your home need 5 k watt = 5000 watt , but this mega watt or gaga watt amount generated from huge turbine s ,to feeding cites needs in electricity demand .

The causes of over loading in generator comes from the action of applying more load that the generator is rated for. An example using a 5000 watt generator and a connected load of 6000 watts.

A 25 foot cord will not cause enough voltage drop to worry about.

To convert Watt seconds to milliwatts seconds, you need to multiply by 1000 since there are 1000 milliwatts in a Watt. For example, if you have 5 Watt seconds, it would be equal to 5000 milliwatts seconds.
