Purged replaced caps turned the valve under the bed and turned on the switch. What am I missing?

You need to always make sure the heater is full of water before turning on ANY switch.
1. A: what brand water heater do you have?
B. If a dual powered Suburban brand.... When you said you turned on switch, is it the switch for the DSI/propane OR the electric heating element? If you just went "huh", then this may help:
Suburban's electric switch and much more
The water heater just using propane, will average around 15 minutes to heat a tank, but this time will vary depending on how cold the initial water in the tank is. You have to have propane tanks with fuel and the valves opened...to use this function.
If using the electric heating element only, it usually takes a little longer, but you must be hooked up to a form of 120 volt shore power for this side to work.
