Furnance blowing cold air

Well went to turn the front furnace on and noticed it was kicking out out cold air. At times the outside inlet was blowing lukewarm to hot but the igniter would kick on and off. All the heat inside remained cold. The rear furnace seems to operating okay albeit itís 5 degrees today. Iím not going anyway but wanted to get rig ready for travel next month. We rarely travel in cold temps and wanted to make sure heat was functioning well. Propane is half full. I tried blowing out any dust with compressed air (itís usually done the trick in the past). Any ideas?

Are you getting constant and good burns off your stovetop?
Confirm youíve got a good flow of propane, then focus on furnace separately.

I went back and gave the exhaust inlet a good cleaning. Turned propane back on and it fired up and stayed lit. Prior to that it would click on and click off.
