Try the other method. If you are using the electric, try the gas and vice versa

also, verify that you have power. If you do, turn the breaker off and then on. Sometimes they may look like they are on and have tripped.

Check your tank level lights to see if they come on as well to make sure you have main power at the control panel.

Got it!!! The 15 amp fuse for the control panel was blown so that must also control the power to the water heater.

Thanks for all of your responses!!! RV-ing always an adventure!!!!!
