Make sure your both your inside and outside shower valves are not open, with the shower head off. That condition would allow the cold and hot water streams to mix.

Is it still making warm water or is it just cold?

Cold water. Gas still works. I looked into it today and checked the GFI plug where the water heater plugs in and its ok, ohm'd the element and it is fine, checked all fuses and breakers. Only thing left is the circuit board. Could it have possibly burnt up?

Did you check the High/Low limit switch in the water heater?

Unless it is the same thing as the high-low limit switch in Lou's post, I don't see where the reset button is covered in this thread. It should under a black boot with "reset" on it......I think.

Sorry, but what does the reset button have to do with the AC part of the water heater?

Ach! Found it. The reset button is ON the high/low limit switch.

See Figure 18 - DUH! I thought it was only used for the gas portion of the heater!

Another thought. The outside toggle switch was bad from the git-go on Surveyor when it was new. I was easier and cheaper to replace that myself instead of driving 85 miles each way to the dealer.

OP has not said if he has voltage AT the electric element.

As mentioned, if the element is bad he should still have voltage
at the terminals.
If no voltage at the terminals then it's a fuseable link bad or reset bad/tripped
or bad rocker switch as Lou and Chap mention.

My rocker switch is frozen on but I don't care, I just use the inside
circuit breaker to turn it off or on.
My HWH is on a breaker by itself. On some trailers they put other things like
maybe the fridge on the same breaker and you can't use the breaker for
an off/on switch.

I have posted a picture here long ago where the fusible link on my
HWH was burned out.
I believe the element went first and it shorted and took out the
fusible link which is part of the reset/thermostat unit.
Not real expensive to replace if that's the problem.

Check for voltage at the element itself for your next step!!
