For the 2 valves in and out of the water heater the handles should be inline with the pipe; the bypass valve (connecting between the hot and cold lines) should be perpendicular to the line.

Turned on the gas and the stove lights, the water heater area on the outside of the trailer was hot and the inside under the bunk the tank is making a humming noise and I still have no hot water

If burner is burning (you did say area near heater was hot) then there must still be a problem with water properly flowing into and out of the water heater. I'm leaning towards some issue with the valves at the water heater.

You did say water flows from the hot taps, it just is not warm, correct?

Open the pressure relief valve on the tank, make sure burner is of cause the water can get real hot, and keep it open till there's no air, only water flowing.

I have to think something is amiss with the valves at the water heater. If the heater is full of water and the burner is working, you should have hot water if the valves are in their proper positions.

I am leaning towards the bypass valve still being "open" allowing cold water to not go through the water heater.

As Canadiankid says purging the air from the water heater with the pressure relief valve is what I do before I fire the heater, but since water is coming out of the hot taps if the valves are properly set there must be some flow through the water heater. It may have a bigger air bubble than usual, but if there is flow it must be relatively full.

Pressure relief value has water flowing and the by pass value is going across the line
