Just for clarity, when you stated you ran it on just electric first......did you happen to turn on the switch inside the camper?
I'm asking this because the inside switch controls the gas Direct Spark Ignitor only. If you have both the gas DSI and electric heating element on at the same time, either side only comes on according to it's separate thermostat calling for it to come on. They both can be used at the same time.
You water could have already have been heated by the gas, and then the thermostat shut it off cause the water was heated to it's temp. You may have thought the electric heating element was what heated it, but it didn't. (it could have been bad the whole time). When you turned off the heating element, you did see the gas operate as it should, but when you turned the gas off, the electric heating element didn't work (and may not have initially)
