It might help to post the water heater brand and model number. Might also try looking online for a manual.

Turn on your Gas Stove until it lights up
then try your water heater.

Not sure what kind of heater you have, but here are two different ones.

Not the tiny rocker switch on both. If you have them, you have both gas and electric hot water. The black rocker switch controls the 120 volt AC element and the switch with the red light inside the camper controls the gas.
