Someone else who has the same unit as you can provide more detailed information specific to your unit.
IF the wh is in bypass (winterizing) mode, turning faucets on won't do it. The only safe way to insure the tank is full is opening the pressure relief valve until water pours out of it.

Thanks, your RV being a 30 amp type, you will need to be mindful of other electrical things you run at the same time, as the electric element uses 12 amps (of the 30) when heating......as you may trip the circuit breakers.

It's explained in edit #2 in the link I provided previously. You will get it all figured out, and feel free to ask any/all questions you want. That's what the gang is here for.
