Trailer: Scamp 2005 13 ft Front Bath

I bought an 05 13' Scamp from a person in a hot climate who never used the furnace. I got it home to my colder climate and oops..no fan, no heat which I assume means no juice (12V) getting to the unit. Where might the fuse be? On the converter are 2 20amp fuses on the left and 2 15 amp fuses on the right, with one vacant slot to the right of the 15 amp fuses. All look good. I looked in all the manuals (furnace and thermostat as well as the Scamp manual) for direction with no luck. Being an electrical dunce I need some advice to trouble shoot the bum furnace. All the rest of the electrical works fine. Thanks.

This may sound ridiculous, but do you have the thermostat turned up high enough that the furnace will fire when lite and the propane is turned on too? Turn on the stove and light it, to get the juice running to the furnace.

FYI... The fan on the furnace in my Scamp runs through the same circuit breaker as the refrigerator.

Thanks. Yep..did all that. Gas is on. I bled the lines with the cook top. all checked out, reset the circuit breakers, blah, blah...just no electricity getting to the furnace. The manual says to turn on the furnace with the switch on the bottom of the thermostat, then set the temp -- no switch on my thermostat. Mr. Scamp also didn't label which fuse is which on the panel, and the electrical diagram on the Scamp manual to me looks like a mouse labyrinth I saw in a biology class once. I'm fixing the table now (surprise, the tiny wood screws fell out of the particle board bracket).
