Just a thought on the LP;

You said you filled "the tank" so don't know if you have multiple tanks or not....but if you do, if you turn the tank selector on the regulator too fast it will not switch. It has to be turned SLOWLY from one tank to the other....just a thought.

Replaced 30 amp fuses. I have heat! Haven't tried the water yet. I filled the tanks but that was three weeks ago. One plug is a bit "rigged" the other should be fine. More so, most info says to fill the water heater too. Pretty sure I know where it is but looks like I will need to figure out how to fill it. There is a metal piece in front of a circular opening that looks like it should move. I'm afraid of breaking it if I mess with it too hard. Couldn't find a funnel last night.
I tried starting the refer with the stove and oven going. No luck. It keeps flashing the LP light after about 30 seconds to a minute.

Try the refer about 10 times before you give up. Next time, take the lower cover off outside and then listen when you turn it on. Let me know if you hear a "clicking".

Filling the water heater is as easy as opening any faucet and letting it run until you get a steady stream of water. There is a bypass valve, either in the convienence center or on the back of the water heater. You need to be sure its set to allow flow.

The single 12 volt battery will not run the furnace for very long and you should be careful to not discharge it too deeply (not sure what type of battery you have... true deep cycle or hybrid/engine start). Also not sure a single 100 watt panel will be enough to recoup post sundown losses... energy management will be fairly essential, with your current setup.

Good luck, there is a great wealth of knowledge here, just waiting to help you

apologies if this is stating the obvious, but I would add that the idea here is to do this before you light the hot water heater (or turn on the electric side) because you will burn out the element if it gets hot with no water in it.

Am I missing something? Amongst all the other issues...a 100 watt solar panel? That's like a 100 watt light bulb. I can't imagine that would start to charge a battery. The converter alone needs more than that to keep going. My guess is your battery is dead and will stay dead unless you get a lot more power to keep things going. A 1000 watt generator will barely keep things charged.
