atwood furnace need help tonight

Ok need some help, were out camping first time in our new 287 bhsw it is getting down to low 40's upper 30's so i know how to turn on the furnace, it works good but not sure exactly how to set the temp. On top is the on off switch on the bottom is a small lever that goes from one side to the other, i thought that was the thermostat but i put it all the way to the left and heater keeps going, anyone know what im doing wrong? It is a 2016 with a atwood hydro flame furnace

Here is the operations manual. http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/hflamefurn04.pdf

There are several different type of thermostats.

You should have a thermostat mounted somewhere on the wall, I have never seen a furnace that has the temp selection located on it.

Give it a bit time to run, it might be cool enough in the unit to run on the lowest setting for awhile.

I would pull the Tstat cover and make sure the wires are in place on the correct terminal. They are just 12 volt wires so no need to worry about getting shocked. Have you used the furnace in the past, did it work like it should cycle on and off.

I`m thinking it has to be a bad or improperly wired Tstat if it will not cycle off on the lowest temp setting.
