When you say switch is on? switch on the hot water heater should be on the hot water heater inside the outer cover. There also may be an internal switch. This switch is usually for propane heating. If you turned on the internal switch but did not open your propane tank, it will not light to heat up.

Switch is on?
Switch on external of hot water heater or switch in side of RV?

One tank is okay - light your stove burner first to make sure air is purged from gas line

Do you have both the elec and gas on for hot water heater at same time?

Not sure yours is the same, but most newr Rvs' have a cross over valve that you can turn to direct which direction or tank you want to use. you do need to open the tank that the valve is turned to.
You can, as long as you have water in the heat water by propane heat:
To do this the gas lines will most likely need to be bled of air. You can do this by:
lighting all burners on kitchen stove.

To heat by gas, with propane on, water in hot water heater, turn on interior switch. It may take several tries until all air is purged. You should be able to hear it heating from outside if working.

Do you get hot water outside if you pull up the handle on the relief valve?

Hot water at tank but nowhere else....my guess is defective backflow preventer or your bypass valve is not opening ....
Dealer should find it in no time ! Good luck and update post when you find out 😄
