The fuses go to 12 volt things like your propane DSI. The water heater on electric will have a circuit breaker. If you ever turned on the electric heating element without water in the tank, then it may have fried the element.This is common.
Also, you have TWO hi-limit temperature emergency cut offs that are built onto the thermostats, both for the propane and electric heating element. Both of these are underneath two rubber covers on the face of the water heater. One is for the propane and the other is for the electric heating element.
If you are sure there is water in the heater, then you can press the resets on the rubber cover and see if the electric element comes on. If not, you may have other problems.
We have also seen that the electric element is not even plugged in to an outlet on new trailers. Access behind the water heater, and see if the power cord is even plugged in. You will have to gain access to the back of the heater from inside your RV....thru a cabinet, fake panel, drawer, etc.
