Suburban Furnace quit!

New here to the forum and happy to be here!. We just bought a new 2013 Sunseeker 3170 and took it out on a short trip in Northern Minnesota this weekend. We had the furnace running all night and it appeared to work great. In the morning I noticed it was a bit chilly (small snow storm outside in the middle of May) and when I adjusted the furnace with the Dometic thermostat I appeared to get no heat. Closer inspection revealed that the furnace will come on with no apparent ignitor initiation, blow cold air, then shut down after 30 seconds or so. No smell of gas and obviously...no heat either! I did note the hot water heater circuit breaker was popped but once reset it stayed set. Are the two connected? Is there another "hidden" fuse somewhere for the Suburban furnace? Any ideas would be helpful. I hate to take it in for warranty work if it's something I have overlooked. Thanks in advance!

This may be a silly question but I have to ask. Have you checked your propane supply? No disrespect intended, just thought you may have overlooked it. I was thinking since you said you just got it maybe the propane tanks are empty. Just a thought.

My first thought also since it is new and the tanks may not have been full.

I'd be checking the electric propane cut off valve.

I'd be lighting the top burners on the stove, just to be 1000% sure that there is propane and that it is flowing properly. Then I would start worrying about the furnace.
