Inside switch on and gas should provide hot water.

Is there a pilot I need to light as the water isn't warming up on gas. It's been an hour or so now since I turned the gas water heater on.

I think this is exactly what happened.

My plan may be to purchase a new switch, and possibly heating element to repair everything when we get back home.

We will use the state park facilities to get cleaned up.

Bummer!

No pilot but it could be in 'lockout'. Sometimes if you've not purged the propane line and the water heater doesn't light on the first few tries, it goes into lockout. Shut the Inside switch off, wait a minute or so and turn it back on. Go outside and listen and see if you hear it light or try to. If you don't hear it trying to light, it may have done some damage to the LP side of the control circuit if you fried the 110v circuit.

I did not read where the OP has said the CB for the heating element is not tripped as mentioned early on. This may help explain the electric side of the issue. Sounds like the heater has gone into lockout also for the DSI side.
