2013 Cedar Creek Silverback Furnace Issues

Hello Everyone. My husband and I are new to this forum. We purchased a used 2103 Silverback last Labor Day. Just opened it up yesterday because I work at the campground where we keep it and we are getting ready to open soon. My husband had the furnace running all day yesterday without any issues, but in the middle of the night it just stopped working. He double checked that we had propane in the tank and we do. When we turned the thermostat off and then back on it would come on and run for a little while and then shut off. It would not come back on again by itself unless we turned it off and back on. It did that for awhile leading my husband to believe it was the thermostat. But now the furnace won't run at all. Can anyone help?

Before a long discussion about heaters - do you have a full tank of propane. Mine will quit in very cold weather if the propane tank is low.

Next does the fan run?
Can you hear the igniter clicking?

I assume you have a old style mechanical thermostat. If you are going to change get a digital - easy to install and much better temp control. There are numerous websites with instructions on how to install.

Did you ever resolve your issue?

To mammakratz;
Were you ever able to figure out what the problem was? We bought our camper, the heat worked for less than 24 hours them this happened to us.....currently waiting for my son who is an HVAC tech, hoping he has a clue lol!
Thanks!

After I checked the propane by lightning the gas range, that's a good way to check the propane. Next I would check the battery
