Almost all of the RV furnaces are propane only.
One of the earlier messages in this thread pointed to the gas valve on the furnace. You may have to remove the outside cover to locate it make sure it is turned on.
You may also need to determine if your furnace is a pilot light model or auto-ignition. Info on the manuals is below. If it is a pilot model, the pilot needs to be lit before you can fire up the furnace.
Two other things to check: Make sure there's propane in the tanks, and that at least one of them is turned on.
The cold air blowing at first is the furnace purging itself of any propane buildup before it lights itself up.
In the files area is the manual for the Atwood propane furnace. It covers nearly all of the models built over the last 25 years or so. There may be other files there that will help.
has other manuals available for download as well.
