LP Detector turned on?
We always carry a small electric heater just in case the furnace would act up.

to the forums. Hope it's something simple.

Furnace

All 3 I checked. Is there a pilot light that needs lit? Sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm new to all this

Sorry but my knowledge is limited but I'll try to help. What furnace does your rig have? I know that in our last two rigs they had an auto ignite pilot (Suburban). It is possible that you may have a spider nest in the tube. Does the igniter "click" like it wants to lite? You should hear several clicking sounds. That is the auto igniter trying to lite the pilot. It may have to do this several times before it actually fires up. I hope this helps you. I'm sure others will step in here and elaborate even further! Good luck!

Depending on your furnace model, you might want to peruse some of the fix it manuals in Files.

With "furnace not working" as our only clue, it is very difficult to troubleshoot your problem. Here are some files that show how it is supposed to work so you might be more specific as to what is not working.
