No hot water in ALL Faucets?

Do you have any water coming out? Cold water?

Did you open all the faucets to let the air escape?

Can you hear the pump working?

I looked up what water heater you have here which is a Atwood G1110A-3C under winnebago parts number but I am having difficulty finding the proper part number under atwood. Can you look on the tank and and send the Atwood part number on the right side in the back should be on the right. I can not tell from the plumbing diagram is you have a mixer valve. If you do have a mixer valve it is prone to debris catching in it. The new mixer valves are better. You can salvage the one you have by soaking it in vinegar and water. Regardless the first item to check is there should be a check valve I believe on the cold water side so the hot water does not back flow out. Anyway check for a check valve check that to see if it got lodged with debris. Can you check to see if this somehow got plugged. Where the hot water comes out if there was a mixer valve this will get easily plugged with calcium.

Since you said you hit a bump. Can first we start simple. Assume you checked to make sure the winter by pass did not get open. First make sure the outside shower faucets are both hot and cold are turned off tightly. If the hot water faucet is open this will cause some of the symptoms you are seeing. Next thing to check is pull all the strainers off the faucets and check for debris. Rinse them in vinegar and water if if you have vinegar. You can rinse out shower head if you want but when debris hits the system the kitchen usually gets hit first then the bathroom faucet. shower head you clean out if you want but doubt if that is an issue. If either the kitchen or bathroom faucet are plugged shower is still affected for flow but not as bad

Let me know model number of water heater and what you find for items mentioned before we go further

Please do not rate me until we have resolved your issues. If I can no longer help I will opt out and get you someone else.
