Super Strange Furnace Issue

I bought my Flagstaff 831RLBSS on Nov 4 and pulled it to Gulf State Park 3 days later. Used the furnace all month in Nov off and on occasionally. Used up one bottle of propane and it automatically switched to the other tank. Left trailer for a few days to return to Tn. Came back and when I turned the heat on the blower would come on and run a minute and shut off. I checked the propane tanks and filled the one empty one. Still no heat. Called warranty repair and they gave me 3 RV repair facilities. I called Cherokee RV and the service tech came out and checked the unit. He found that the switch on the furnace was turned off!!!!

So, how is this possible? I did not turn it off. I don't think I can even reach the switch with the init in place. I know I used the heat prior to this.

Strange things!!

There is a switch inside the furnace that turns the control board on and off.
