Is your stove lighting like it should? This proves there's actually propane available!

Yes. The stove has been our way of heating the trailer up a bit

The blower should actually come on for several seconds BEFORE you hear any clicking noise. This clears the combustion chamber ahead of the gas valve opening up to ensure you don't have too much gag in the chamber causing a explosion. Is this happening?

Blower comes on FIRST, before ANY CLICKING!

Be sure to crack a window or two if your heating with your cook stove. Carbon monoxide!!!

No explosions or anything. Blower doesn't come on so I assume it never ignites

For the most part I can only help for the easy stuff....lol
Once again locate the fuse/breaker.

From my understanding if the fan does not work the furnace will not kick in. This is a safety feature.

Not sure if this will help but when the weather was on the cool side there were a few times my propane would not run properly hence no heat. Just for shits and giggles see if the flame(s) on the stove are weak.

If so what I ended up doing was using the BBQ tank. Ya I dunno but it worked.

Other than the fuse/breaker check the obvious, see what the thermostat is set to and set to heat.

An electric space heater is ALWAYS a good addition to any RV, just for situations like your experiencing. Works well in cool weather, will be a bit lacking in cold temps though.

So, if the furnace is clicking, it's getting 12V. However, It shouldn't click if the blower has not been on for several seconds FIRST as I stated above.

Sounds like a click from the blower trying to start. But doesn't
