Question Working the Heating System in a Class A

We recently purchased our 2001 Fourwinds Windsport 30Q & were having some trouble getting the heat going. We do have some propane in the tank. The range ignites but can't get the heat to turn on. Is there a switch we're missing to turn the furnace on besides the thermostat? Super newbie's here...

Go to an rv service center and buy two hours of labor.
This will allow them to check Everything and partially train you at the same time.
It'll be the best $250 you'll spend on your rv.

You haven't supplied us even a beginning of the information we'll need to diagnose from this distance.

Honest, spend the $250.

There is an on/off/reset switch on the furnace itself that may be off, but that also supplies power to the thermostat.
The furnace required 12 VDC from the house batteries and/or SP as does your fridge. Is the fridge working?
Do you hear any sound when you turn the furnace on using the thermostat?
