Last RV was a 2006 Lexington with same problem. A loose wire on the blower motor under refridge was the culprit. Tight fit to work there, but otherwise an easy repair.

Yes. Need a digital voltmeter for sure. Harbor freight has them for about $20. The furnace works on 12 volts from battery. Need to make sure you have that power to furnace. If the thermostat has a fan switch. Try that to see if blower will come on.

Just my 2 cents for, from the picture you posted in your first post the thermostat is set to OFF. push it up high for heat and low for cool. IMHO

Not sure if anyone mentioned it but I had the same problem and it was a loose wire in the air conditioner on the 12 volt side. The furnace and air conditioner are interconnected on some units. I removed the air conditioner filter housing on the inside of the trailer and wiggled the 12 volt wires and the furnace started and have had no problems since.

Remove unit from RV and remove from housing to gain access to fans. Shut propane bottles off, light stove to empty lines....

Running 2 Ceramic heaters on high will draw approx 25A. That plus the converter current will put you right at your limit. If you turn on any any additional appliances TV, microwave, heated bed, etc, you will trip a breaker if you have a 30A connection. . You can not count on running one of the heaters on the 15/20A outlet in the pedestal as in many parks, there is a 100A breaker up stream protecting 3 30A sites.
