Hi, I'm Robert. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily.

What is the make and model of the water heater. IS the reset under the outside access panel? It would have a small raised box with a circle that you push in for the reset, that would be a suburban water heater.

Are you plugged directly into power with NO adapters or extension cords? OR are you plugging into a standard household outlet?

Thanks, Robert

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 3 years ago

You should have a breaker feeding that circuit. Go around the RV and make sure you do not have a tripped GFI these will be outlets with a test and reset on them, they are normally in the bathroom and or galley but can be located just about anywhere else including the outside of the RV. Hard for me to say where the wiring is routed. Start at the breaker panel, look for a tripped GFI and then check each outlet, make sure you have no loose wires or melted wires. Normally the water heater would be on it's own dedicated breaker but understand if it is tied in with the outlets. I also might get a polarity checker and check the polarity of the outlets. IF you are running on a standard house outlet and trying to use the AC side of the water heater that may cause problems.
