did you jump out the red and white wire like suggested earlier?

...with a paper clip, piece of wire or something similar

If you are going to diagnose this yourself, go to Walmart, Harbor Freight or radio Shack and purchase an inexpensive auto ranging meter. a Neon 120V test light is of no use when diagnosing the 12V system in an RV.

Sometimes trying to fix things ourselves to save a few bucks ends up costing more because more gets broken.

I'm with hbillsmith here, are you sure you even have propane, and the cylinders are turned on (open)? This is the more common root reason for your furnace not working (it works off propane), and is the easiest thing to check for before you start going too far into the 12 volt reasonings.

The furnace is a huge propane user, and you may be just out of propane, or real low.

Have you tried lighting your stove?

In post #1 they stated the propane stove works fine.

Given the information to date, since trying to reset the lockout didn't work, and based on the other posts, I agree with BandB that it's probably time to call a mobile tech.

Even though it's costly, it's still better to call someone then it is to risk an incident trying to troubleshoot something that deals with electricity, propane and fire.

I know he said that, but not to be stupid, does it? My oven will run for 3 or 4 minutes easy even with the tanks off. So a quick check might not work.

But I cannot remember if he said the fan even tried to fire.. Did anyone else suggest to just change the thermostat out? I think someone had a furnace issue, everyone trouble shooter it to death and it turned out the thermostat was bad..
