Heater and A/C

I own a 1999 Hitchhiker II 31 CKTGBW and I had it sitting for 3 years. Everything worked when I parked it. I just hooked it back up and now all of the lights work but I cannot get the heater or a/c to come on. Is there an easy reset button? I cant think that because my remote batteries are dead, that 2 AAA batteries would keep it from working.

Backtrack through all your prep to put her into storage. You probably did something to put it into storage you still need to do, like manually turn something back on. A switch in the compartment, electric gas shut off, main power shutoff to the unit, etc..

I have not hooked up the propane yet. I am doing that Saturday but it shouldn't make a difference. I am going to pull the side panels and see if I have a reset switch where the heater element is.

Furnace requires 12VDC for power and propane to heat

A/C Unit requires 120VAC for Fan & Compressor BUT requires 12VDC for controls

Thermostat uses 12VDC to turn furnace or A/C Unit ON

12VDC from FUSED source (DC Dist Panel withe AC Power Panel)
12VDC POS goes to On/Off Circuit Breaker on the furnace frame (outside access panel) and also goes to the Thermostat
Thermostat is a 'switch'....DC goes to furnace via Blue wire or to A/C Unit via Yellow wire

So I checked the outside reset and pressed it with no change. I manually hooked up the 2nd a/c unit since it does carry a sep chord and it works. So I know the system works, just not getting power. Is it possible that the adapter power plug I hook it up to is not allowing sufficient voltage? All of the lights and hot water heater are working off of it.
