An easy check is to go outside to the furnace cover and see if there is any hot exhaust coming out of it, if not its only the fan running. check you propane tanks make sure you are not on an empty tank.

Do other LP appliances work OK?
Is the battery sufficiently charged?

Did you bleed the air out of your propane lines? If not, turn on a couple of burners on your stove top to do so and your furnace should light once the air is forced out of the gas lines. I do this before every trip to ensure that my fridge, furnace, and hot water heater light.

Are you hook up to shore power? Battery needs to have a good charge for the furnace motor to turn fast enough to activate sail switch and then gas valve.

When it kicks on... do you hear it trying to ignight? (sparking noise)
You may have to listen out by the exhaust. (have someone else turn it on)

Send a message via MSN to Tiggerdad
Had an issue with mine last year. Could hear the fan turn on, igniter would click and then hear the roar of a flame for 1-2 seconds, flame would go out then igniter would click again, hear roar of flame and then shut down again. Fan would continue to run. After third time the system locked itself down. Turned thermostat off and then back on to reset.

Took it apart and everything was clean. put it back together and same thing. Took apart again and I found a tiny wisp of a spider web that would float in the air when fan was running. Cleaned the spider web and all was well. Look very CAREFULLY for something like that, Although I overlooked the spider web the first time it take almost nothing to cause the flame to go out. Good luck and let us know what you find.

Had similar trouble with our propane furnace not kicking on in our 2016 Sunseeker 3010DS. We travel with a hairy dog and some of that dog hair had been drawn into the furnace. After a thorough clean out and adding a screen to prevent a reoccurrence, have had no further problems. Just a thought.

That is the reason I made a filter rack to hold a 16X16 filter in front of the furnace intake in the bedroom of my TT

Check for spark at igniter. Flaky rust, cobwebs, dirt can make it difficult for igniter to spark on my fridge. Good cleaning, repositioning igniter fixed the issue for me due to rust.

Back to basics. If your thermostat is like mine,.
?Fan on auto?
? Click down to heat?

Temp set to temp up higher than ambient?

Kinda on the subject:
I had the roof replaced a while back and when we used the furnace for the first time after that the a/c fan came on too. we only used the furnace once before and I don't remember the a/c fan blowing when the furnace was used. Could the folks who replaced the roof have wired something wrong when they reinstalled the a/c unit?

make sure your thermostat is on "auto" instead of high and low

Hi. Mine still isnít working either but I got a few ideas from the techs at dealership. They said to run the gas powered appliances in the back of the camper (outdoor kitchen and hot water heater off gas) to pull the gas back through the lines. After the lines are full then try again. They also said to be sure to push the temp gauge on the therm all the way up to light and then put it back down.
