Like I said before, this has never happened before. Do you think the thermo is broke?

Could be.
I would put a multimeter on it.

Check the links in this thread.

Defective Furnace? - Page 2 - Forest River Forums

Tons of info on testing and replacement.

The furnace is 12 volts and you can pull the fuse in the distribution center.. Same as an automotive fuse and the panel should be labelled. That way at least you can use the electrical system, while you get er fixed.

many of us replace that crappy Dometic analog thermo, with a digital one, such as a Hunter or Honeywell thermo.

LinDan,
You have some good responses and a direction to head in. The only thing I would add is to leave the coach plugged in to 110v with the battery disconnect on until your house batts are fully charged then turn the disconnect switch off so the vampires don't kill your batts.
Good luck with the fix and please do post what you find to be the causal factor.

It might be a defective thermostat. Being an analog thermostat with mechanical switches, there might be a defective/dirty/oxidized switch. Try moving each switch back and forth several times real fast. If this should correct the problem, a new (hopefully digital) thermostat may be called for.

Here is my suggestion for what it's worth. Your Screen name says your location is So Cal., if you would care to narrow down your location maybe a member here would be willing to stop by and give you a refresher course on how things work, where various controls are located, and share a few time learned educational experiences with you. Most RV folks are more then welcome to help one another out.
Just a thought,

If you turn the propane on and bump the thermostat up to about 70: does the heat come on? If it does, flip the furnace switch from off to furnace then back to off. Turn the thermostat back down all the way. The heater will run until cool down then should turn off. If it doesn't, bad thermostat switch. Pull fuse to turn off and have the thermostat fixed or replace. There are several threads on the forum replacing the thermostats with digital ones from Home Depot.
