Stand in front of the switch panel by the back door and have someone turn the hot water on. A little red light will light next to the hot water switch when it lights. If not, the overheat breaker inside the water heater door is probably the cause.
Take a screwdriver and open the hot water heater door. Look in the upper left for a small button. Push it in. It is the over temperature circuit breaker.
If you only turn the hot water on part way, the water heater will overheat and pop that breaker.
Look at the red plastic parts left of middle and see if there is a printed label about the size of an address label. If not, you haven't done the Atwood water heater recall. If you do have the label, look underneath for an aluminum plate about the size of a postage stamp with one hole and a screw in that hole. It will be a screw that requires a special screwdriver.
If the plate is there, the recall was done. The red knob to the right of that has to be all the way to the top "full on" for the water heater to work after the recall.
When you put the cover back on, you need to stick the screwdriver through the round hole towards the top to line up the little black plastic pipe with the hole.
Also, the door doesn't have hinges. It lifts up off of pins.
