Crow, you have to be a bit of a detective.
Try the other tank.
Even if you have 2 full tanks it's possible that one of your tank pigtails
(short hose from regulator to tank) is bad.
These hoses have built in check valves and it's fairly common for them
to stick.
Flip your regulator handle to the other tank and close and re-open both
tank valves.
Try to light your stove and furnace again.
If you still get low gas flow it's probably a bad regulator.

I changed both my pigtails and did not solve my low flow problem.
A new regulator fixed it.

Good luck!

Thanks for the info guys.

My camper had been sitting up for 5 years or so when I bought it last year and there has been a lot of little things to fix. I think the regulator is one of those small things to replace. I will get a new regulator and see how it works.

I had an electric heater with me so it kept the camper fairly warm while I was out deer hunting after Christmas but it takes a long time for it to warm up the camper.

My furnace has never worked quite right. Assuming you have the same ducted furnace I do (or close enough)

There is a reset switch on the right side of my furnce, you can't see it, but it's right beside where a bundle of wires enters the side of the furnace. About dead center middle of the ride side, as you face the furnace from inside the trailer. It's a rocker switch. If I reset the rocker switch the furnace will cycle normally.

Once.

You have to reach your hand way back in there to find the switch, perhaps through a cabinet next to the furnace.

Radio- you say if you reset it, you get one cycle? Does shutting off
the thermostat (not turning it down but rather turning it off) do the
same thing? If so it sounds like you need a control board.

Without knowing your furnace make and model # I'm purely guessing
you need the Dinosaur board called the Fan 50 plus pins.
You can get one from AmericanRVcompany.com
They had the best price I found after much searching. About $95 including
shipping. (Their Ebay price might be more or less than their own
website price. You should check both if you're interested.)

See my long ordeal trying to get mine working without a new board here--
Suburban Furnace NT20S intermittent operation

I should have taken the advice early on and just got a new board.
That's what I have now and it works fine.
Very easy install. Replaces the old board perfectly- it's literally "plug and
play".
Good luck!
