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)

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 the same problem with a spider web. Blew it out with air from the outside.
