Lloyd, I just checked the thermostat in my trailer. My thermostat clicks because there is plastic stop on the adjustment lever in the thermostat. Is that the click your hearing?
I think you may have an open circuit between your thermostat and furnace.
Check and tighten any connections.

The click is when the slider hits about 80 and then the silver end of the coil makes a magnetic connection. That's when I usually get the heater to go on. I check the heater's exhaust vent on the outside, even unscrewed it to see in there but it won't budge. Can't really get a look in there for water. What type of meter should I use to check to make sure there is a good connection between the thermostat and furnace?

You need to use your meter to check for continuity.
Use a resistance range so that when the two leads are together as a closed circuit you get full scal reading.

When the thermostat is off you should get an open circuit or no reading at all.
When the thermostat closes(Clicks on) you should get the full scale reading.

Try this right at the back of the thermostat first,I think you can even do it from the front depending on your thermostat?
If it reads correctly there then try it where the thermostat connects to the furnace and you can tell if the wire is good too.

Whether you have a Digital or Analog meter the method is the same.
If your meter has a buzzer function for continuity that may be even easier to try.

Hope this made sense?
