Furnace (SOLVED)

Furnace isn't lighting but everything else works. Can hear it try to light but no go. 2012 Sierra 356 rl. Worked fine last season. Brought a regulator with just in case. Passenger side propane tank compartment stinks, even when tank it off and using driver side tank. Filled both tanks 3 weeks ago issue began with tiny flame at stove. Thought tanks were empty but they weren't. Filled anyway. Flame "ok" at stove, water heater lights but no go on furnace. Any thoughts to self fix since we park it 2 hrs from home? Thanx!

Ok, call it luck but I'll take it. I read more replies from others. I even forgot a co-worker told me to turn the tanks on very slowly. I turned the left tank on real slow, heard it fuel up, came back in and full nice flame on stove and furnace lit up!! Yea!!

Glad you figured it out. Slow is the way to go otherwise the tank sensor stuts down.
