The final check requires you to remove the burner tube again and test for
voltage across the heating element connections.
If you have voltage there and no heat it's the element again.
IF you don't have voltage at the element you have to check up stream which
is the rocker switch, or thermostat/safety switch, or power at the outlet??
You really need to check for power at the outlet somehow.

My 2¢
Good luck!

And, be sure the tank is full before turning the heater element on. my 2 Lincolns. Now you have 4.

If you have the rocker switch for the water heater in the on position at the convenience center your water heater will only work on propane.

Try looking for a rocker switch outside on water heater that need to be on the On position, but make sure you turn it Off when you're not plug in shore power

You can run them both at the same time.

Yes, but you will be using propane and also using shore power, no need for that

Useful when first heating up and when taking showers to replenish faster. I do that and then turn off the propane.

Doesn't sound correct to me. My (and most) Suburbans will run both gas and electric at the same time.
