With lows of 43 degrees it was unfortunate to find our furnace not kicking on. No clicking or fan kicking on. Full propane, full battery and other propane appliances working.

In the middle of the night I popped open the analog thermostat and spun the heat anticipator forward and back. To my surprise the furnace turned on. I moved it back to where it was at about 1.2.

I have no clue why that helped. Is my thermostat faulty?

 
Basically that device is like a volume control. the contact (one of 2) was dirty and you cleaned it by moving it. So yes it WAS defective and YOU fixed it.
