2021 Coleman Lantern BH 214 Dometic Furnace

So, we decided to see how the furnace worked. Went to the very simple looking analog thermostat and flipped the one switch (literally 1 switch), waited and nothing happened. For the first time YouTube is zero help. There were some clues that lead me to believe there may be a power switch accessible from the outside access panel. Any thoughts not regarding whether the propane is turned on are greatly appreciated.

With all my propane appliances if they have not been used for several months the propane dissipates. I will light the stove top which takes a minute or so. With the frig and hot water heater after a few attempts to light it stops. I then have to turn it off and on again to start a new cycle.

Don't be to quick to dismiss propane as the problem. If you are using the stove burner then your propane tank is ok. I turned the valve on my tank a little to quick and the safety kicked. Just turn valve of wait a moment then turn on slowly.

When you say nothing happens, no fan, no ignitor clicking? Sounds like no power. On my Coleman, that switch is pretty hard to flip. It may not be on all the way. There is no other switch I know of, but there is a fuse in the panel below the refrigerator. If it is blown, there is an issue there. Most likely though, the thermostat switch is not on all the way.
