We were plugged into electricity but hadn't hooked up our battery yet. It is still under warranty but wanted to check some more things ourselves. Thanks in advance.
Yes you have to have battery voltage to activate the propane monitor which when in normal condition has a green light which then activates 12 volts to propane into the rig.
You just didn't have and propane to the heater because you didn't have battery voltage.
I have attached the generic motorhome owners manual for you to read. It may help. See page 40.
I do not have your trailer so I may be wrong in telling you where your heater is located but it is usually behind a wooden faceplate inside with slots in it. You can also find the exhaust on the outside of the trailer. Usually chrome plate with a hole.
Hope this helps a little. Here is a picture of the vent.
