Hi, I'm Robert. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily.

What is the make and model of the furnace?

Right now when you turn the thermostat on and raise the temp does the blower motor come on? OR nothing at all happens?

I do see you mentioned it is an Atwood, when you try and run the furnace will the blower motor come on at all?
