As Glenn stated, I just set our EdenPure electric heater in front of the furnace at night and turn on the furnace blower to circulate heat throughout the 5er and the basement. Had to remove the furnace to get to the blower to add the extra switch so the blower will work without the burner being on. Works great.

Oldcoot (OC) was here, see posts #3 and #11. What he did would work for me, just one problem. I am trying to not have to pull the furnace out. The only way he found to put a switch on the furnace blower motor required pulling it out. In order to run the blower with-out igniting the furnace would require that switch.

There is a "NO (normally open) time delay relay" that you need to get to. You need to supply 12 volts to the motor line off of that relay, hence the switch.

I am trying to add heat to the underbelly with-out tearing the furnace out. Using a booster fan controlled by a thermostat seems to be the only other way to do this.

There would be no heat from the registers but a god ceramic heater and using the ceiling fan should keep the trailer comfortable. If it got too cold for it to keep up then I could run the furnace.

Yes, need to get 12 VDC to the red wire on the blower motor. If that wire came out to the wiring harness it would be easy but it doesn't. It comes off a relay inside the furnace.
