Ok, and just to clarity, with the Tankless Water heater, does that only work off of Propane? Or does it work if just plugged in, or Generator? I am going to open the box where the heater is tomorrow and look at the things suggested here. If it only works off of propane, where do I turn on propane. Geeze, everytime I think I know a thing or two there are others that I don't know.

Next, so lets say I want hot water. I make sure the red button is on and then turn on hot water from the faucet? Do I need to do anything with the button that says Tank and Heater? What is the difference between the Tank/Heater and the Red Water/Heater button.

Help!!! Getting there...
Mine works on both gas and electric.

To work on gas you have to have propane in the propane tank and the propane switch must be in the ON position. The propane switch is next to the propane fill valve on the left side of you REV.

It should work on electric if you are plugged in to shore (house) power. I am not sure if your battery toggle switch needs to be on or not for that to happen. If not plugged in to shore power then I believe you can get hot water if your battery switch is on and you have water in your fresh water tank and you have your hot water switch on.

for those who have a 2015 model

the small overheat breaker ( push in ) if you hear it click , then problem fixed and when you use hot water - turn fully on and not half way.

Not sure if it has been mentioned, but did you check to make sure the LP Gas is turned on at the tank?

Sorry if this was already discussed.
