This is what I do when the furnace will not work, first think I check is the lp tanks, if full or about full I light the stove and turn stove on high. If stove burns good I shut off stove and then if I'm plugged in I unplug from the pedestal outside and go in house and check the lights. If the lights work then I call the man to fix it. I can mess something up real fast

Folks

The fan does not work. No control so propane is a non issue right now.

The OP said that in post 1. Suggestions of getting a test light then confirming it worked on a 110 v outlet but shows no power strongly suggests the OP should seek help.

Being a Technologist gleaning from what the OP has said he needs external help to assist. Even a fellow RVer might be able to troubleshoot the issue.

The furnace is 12v, so it should work if the batteries are up and the shore line disconnected. I still say the picture shows the thermostat in the Off position.

Quote the OP Post #1

1. Propane stove works fine
2. Fuses all good
3. Only know how to turn it on from the thermostat inside


If these are correct then a service call is required. He knows how to turn it on.

Not disputing that, just giving the OP the credit that they checked that knowing how to turn it on.

Being a 2005 a myriad of things could be wrong electrically and not to scare the OP with limited skills might take some time to correct.

I would make sure the batteries were charged, turn the thermostat to as high as it goes and then start checking for 12 volts at the furnace, if none, I would start changing fuses in the converter. Some could be bad and still look good. Pull the fuses and check of continuity on each and every fuse. Then start checking for 12v in the thermostat.

Yes, but you know what you're doing. I agree with Brian, this OP may need help doing that safely.

Working with 12v is about as safe as you can get.
