I suspect you have something stuck in the main orifice to the firebox. You have to remove the furnace to get to it. Consult your owners manual for the furnace, not the trailer. There is a steel gas pipe that bends around the rear of the fan chamber and goes into the firebox through a square plate with four screws. In order to remove this plate, you have to disconnect the pipe further back. There is a brass orifice at the end of this pipe inside the firebox with a tiny round hole. Spiders and other friends enjoy filling up these small holes and there just isn't enough gas pressure to clean them out. Best advise: get it working and then run the furnace at least once every two weeks to keep the buggers out.

All of the above is good advice. Be sure upon re-installation to check for propane leaks by performing a drop pressure test, or test propane lines with propane liquid leak detector. Kev

I had a similiar problem.

I was reminded that the furnace blows cold air at the beginning and end of it's cycle. So I waited .......still cold. Then I tried burning the stove top
to make sure gas was in the lines. That did the trick. I suspect it is dirty
and I will probably experience further problems shortly.
