Furnace operation on battery

New to camping, gave a Grey Wolf 27RR, how do I run furnace while on battery power? I have the Domestic thermostat, it won't power up so I can run furnace.

Sounds like a fuse, since the furnace is 12VDC.

Do you have the digital thermostat?

Any lights on it?

Try running something else with propane like a range couple minutes, it helps clean air from lines. Then try furnace again. Be sure battery is providing power to other DC items to verify that also.

The digit thermostat doesn't turn on at all.

If you have a brown cover on the furnace take it off and see if you have a breaker under it.

Can you post a picture of the t-stat?

Is it the factory t-stat or an upgrade?

If it's an upgraded model check the batteries in the t-stat itself.

Is it the square one or rectangular one?
What color is it?

Do any numbers show up on it if you press the buttons?
