Go outside and open the water heater hatch. You should see a flexible rubber membrane (often brownish) about the size of a silver dollar. The reset in under there. Push on the membrane. Refer to manual.

With the power off you can use your volt meter in the ohm position to check for continuity accross the two screws on the element. No continuity...element is bad. To replace you can get an element (1500w) at Lowes or Home Depot and buy the removal tool. Check out this link for pics on how to replace (Suburban)
Webshots, the best outdoor photos!

DH went outside and looked. There is not rubber membrane anywhere. We cannot find a reset button. The red light in the control panel inside the coach has never lit up. Manual does not say anything about a reset button (just a dinky manual) but it does mention that if something was wrong with the electric, the red indicator light would come on.

In the link I posted, look at the picture labeled "all finished". The black square rubber pad with two round circles on it cover you high temp reset buttons. Try pushing on those round buttons.
The element is located under the lower square rubber cover. You have to rmove the propane line to take off that cover. Then you can test for continuity.

The Crusaders have an Atwood water heater. If it's not the element I would guess the circuit board located on the water heater itself. I had to replace the one on my LaCrosse. Very easy to do.
