Furnace runs, but won't restart.

2012 Wolf Pup 17rr with surbaban furnace. Shore power. Stove works fine, lp level is fine. My issue is I can start the furnace by sliding thermostat bar to the left which shuts it off, then slide it to the right. Furnace works great, and shuts off at temperature.

Problem is, that it won't RESTART. So I go back to shutting it off, wait, setting temp again, then restart.

Smile furnace starts

Hi I don't have an answer for you but I do have a question that some one may be able to help with. When we are hooked up to power and turn on the furnace the AC also start up. When on propane this does not happen. Weird eh? the thermostat is set for furnace and temp. but both are going.
We have a 2013 Sunseeker 26.5 Class C motor home.

Not weird and this very question gets asked a LOT here.
Set your fan setting to AUTO if you would rather the A/C fan doesn't run with the furnace. Some folks like this feature as it distributes the air throughout the rig better. (warm air rises)

I would also suggest you start a NEW thread about your questions so as to not derail the intended purpose of answering the OP's question.

There are contacts at the bottom of the thermostat in your photo.
When it is time for the furnace to restart, (calling for heat) are these contacts open or closed?
