No hot water

So I did the rookie mistake, in a rush of course I turned on the water heater with the bypass valves in bypass position and went to a concert for 4hrs. Come back and no hot water. Figured out the unit was in bypass opened up the valves bled out the air and the water heater after cycling the c/b on the panel does nothing. No electric heat probably destroyed the heating element, but I can't figure out why the propane system won't kick in? Yes I have propane and the valves are open. Also when the power switch is cycled it does not attempt to light no snap from the inginter. Does anyone have any suggestions or is it cold showers till I can get service. 🤔

I would check the electrical connections as well there is a fuse in a red plastic tube behind the heater panel. You can remove the fuse and bypass it to see if it is blown or not but be sure to replace it if it is blown. Mine was not working and I cleaned all the connections behind the heater panel outside the trailer and all came back on line.

The one in the clear plastic? Looks good through the clear plastic but I will disconnect it and check closer. The owners manual talks about a remote switch?? Do these things have a remote switch with some sort of safety incorporated or is it just the c/b on the panel?

The only switch I have is on my thermostat. And yes the o e in the clear plastic. You should be able to remove it and plugthe wire in directly just for troubleshooting if it's good put it back if not replace it. Or test with ohm meter

There may also be a wiring diagram inside the heater compartment. Check for voltage at appropriate pins or connectors.

You may have to re-light the auto pilot?
I was not getting any hot water and the tech where I bought my trailer walked me through it over the phone. I had to go behind the trailer near the water plug but I forgot exactly what I did??
Good luck

I removed that resistor/fuse and connected the brown wire to the tab cycled the c/b and nothing. Unfortunately I don't have my meter with me and I'm still on the trip. There is some sort of overheat protection that can be reset apparently. Horrible system not to have a manual light like a gas burner I honestly think I'd rather have the non electronic version of this heater and just light it when I set up.
