no hot water - again

I just de-winterized my camper and I have no hot water, the water heater has been running for about an hour and nothing but warm/cold water. I attached a pic of my water tank, are the valves positioned correctly?

Valves are correct. Check fuses, breakers, igniters etc. Assume that you purged the water from the HW line before you kicked the heater on. Is it gas, 110v or both?

I learned that one cannot turn the switch off fast enough to prevent the electric element from burning up after realizing there's no water in the water heater when that "uh-oh" moment happens...

It should be easy enough to tell if the gas has kicked on...

@Bikendan, I don't have an outside shower on mine.

After letting the heater run for about an hour, I want back and tested it and I had hot water.
