In the last photo you posted, there are two round black discs behind and jsut to the right of the bypass valve. Using one finger, push each one fairly hard. There are the over temp protection bimetal discs. if one or both click when pressed, they were tripped. Then try again.

When you say warm water? Is it warmer than air temp?

Ok, I'll try that in a minute.
When I say luke warm, I'm comparing it to what comes out out of the cold spocet, which is cold! The hot side isn't cold, it's warm.

If that 2nd picture is your water heater then you have a switch for electric only. It is the lower left corner behind some other objects. If your DSI fault light is NOT on. You should be cooking water with gas. I will side with others to say it could be the ball valve. If you run hot water and touch red tubing as it comes out of heater. That should be hot even if tap is luke warm. If that the case ball valve is either stuck or broke. Replace either way.

I just pressed the reset buttons and even though I did not hear a click, I did hear the ignite and gas!!
Is that gas fire gonna burn full force like that all the time?
I had the switch on for electric, but that never worked. I'd prefer electric while camping, it's free...
I'll let you know if the fire heats it!

Good deal.

However, based off of some of your previous posts in this thread, there exists a high probability you have burned up the electric heating element if you turned it on, with out water being in the tank due to the bypass valves being set for winter.

It's nothing you have to concern yourself with at this time, and can just use propane to heat your water (I would go ahead and turn the electric switch on the face of the water heater to off). Your water heater has a built in thermostat/eco reset (it's that button you pushed under the rubber cover) and when operating correctly the burner will turn itself off when the water heats up to a preset temp.

It's explained in the link I provided earlier.
