I'm trying to combine a straight line that has a zig zag effect across a triangle and when I try to use the shape builder tool the wavy lines I want get flattened out and pushed to the tiny amount space that doesnt get added to the new shape. Thank you.

First expand the effect: Object > Expand appearance. Then you can operate on the path.
