The obvious - make sure you have propane and the valve is open. Next make sure the battery is charged or you are plugged in.

I have seen where the line has air in it and it may take several tries. If the stove lites cycle the furnace a few times waiting a few minutes between tries.

Look for spiders or mud packed in the tube. Clean all cob webs, hornets nests, etc. out of the furnace area.

Good luck - it is starting to get cold at night.

You guys are great... thanks for the quick replies..

I wanted to say I found some information in the owner's manual and will try to insert the picture I took of it. I really appreciate you guys' help and will let you know. The lady who's living in it was asleep and I couldn't turn the thermostat down, power down to start the process. Message me if you need the pic PDF
