If the controller board in the furnace becomes "confused" cycling that switch is like a reboot. Mine does that from time to time. Fortunately mine is near the water filter/pump/water heater compartment and is therefore somewhat easy to reach.

But it sounds like you have found your problem.

I also saw another blue wire with a crimp on the end but no other wire. I think the white wire has broken off at this crimp, it's a 20-22 gauge wire so it could break easily. I think this is why the furnace won't start. I will have to call the dealer though before randomly connecting wires on a propane furnace. Thanks for the help, ill post the result after the dealer checks it out.
Sounds like a broken thermostat wire. If it was me- I'd connect it and see
what happens! Not telling you to do that, just what I'd do!

Hi if you want a wiring diagram of how the differentiate types of thermostats are wired go to library on the to of this page and click on the library icon. Then scroll down to heating and cooling and open this page. Then scroll down to (Thermostat - Dometic Analog Schematics (3107541) ) I believe it is down about 5 or 6 from the top.

Hope this is helpful Tim
