If you haven't already read this FAQ, it may help:

Suburban's electric switch and much more

I am wondering in they taped the electric element switch in the actual off position. You may want to check as we've definitely seen stranger things happen.. The FAQ above shows the switch positions.

No hot water when parked in driveway on 110. Sound definitely coming from water heater but stops after few minutes.

Hot water after 10 minutes after flipping switch inside RV on panel

I'll be going out to check switch behind cover on outside of RV shortly...expect to find it in off position.

My fridge has some fans mounted behind to help with the airflow behind it. you might be hearing those and not controlled from just turning your fridge off but by a thermostat

checked the switch behind the cover on the outside of the rv. It's in the off position.
Perhaps it is the fan from the fridge?
Anyway we've not experienced any problems with the water heater. Have never used it via elect. Thanks to all for your help.

That humming noise could be your charger topping the batteries if you are on shore power and have the red switch in your stairwell in the on position.

The power converter has to be what is making the noise, not the water heater. The converter unit is mounted next to the heater. I can hear mine hum when on shore power.
