Hot Water Heater will not work on Electric

Our Hot Water stopped working on Electric.
It works fine on propane.
Our Pinnacle is only about a month old, any suggestions as to what is wrong?
I have pressed the the high limit reset button but still no electric hot water.

Might check your circuit breakers. If it is tripped there might be a problem. Also if you turned on the heater with no water in the tank you might have overheated the heater element.

When I had the same problem with my current fifth wheel the problem turned out to be a wire connection had come loose on the water heater.

X2 the first place I would check is the circuit breaker. Hope you didn't turn it on without water in the tank you might have burned out the element. You can do a continuity check to find out. Good luck.

Another obvious thing is check the on/off switch on the water heater. Mine has one on the outside and also one on the status panel inside. Verify all push on wire connections for corrosion.

Had the same problem yesterday. Went through the Suburban trouble shooting guide and it appears I have a bad element. You should have 14.5 - 17 ohms on the element and mine is 10.5. Now to see if Jayco will send me a new element. Ours is also in a Pinnacle and have only been using it for two months.

Update to Water Heater not working on Electric.
We stopped by Jayco Dealer in Dothan AL on Wednesday, they found the Electric Operation Thermostat on the Water Heater was bad, replaced it and all is good now.
