No water in hot water heater

At camp now and filled my fresh water tank to full. Went to check water heater and I could hear air pressure but no water came out. I decided to try the city water connection and still no water is in the water heater. Am I missing something? Does propane have to be on to see if the heater has water? I was under the impression the eater heater gets filled first.

Bypass valves. Hold on and I will edit this link:

NO (OR MINIMAL) HOT WATER (Please read first)

Shouldn't be the valves as I've never messed with them before. I've always had hot water when needed prior to this trip.

Do you have any water coming out your taps (hot tap or cold tap)?

I would check for a possible kinked line to/from the water heater...and again maybe the valves just to be sure something didn't get turned over the winter.

I would also flip up the Pressure relief valve on the face of the water heater to see if water comes out there. If it does, then it means water is getting into the water heater and pressurized up to the that point. I would check from the hot water outlet going forward.

If not, then you can start backtracking from there, Starting at the cold water inlet to the water heater.

I'll be checking the lines shortly. Pressure relief valve is where I always check to see if water is in.

When did it last have water in it and have you changed anything since then?
If you opened the pressure relief, how long did you wait for water to come out?
Remember, if completely empty it has to put about 6 gallons in the tank to fill.

I used it in February last time. It's been parked since. I'm wondering if my sensors are inaccurate and my fresh water tank isn't full, which would possibly mean the water heater hasn't been filled as well. Like I said, I was under the impression the hot water heater would be filled before the fresh water tank

I let the pressure go all the way out.
