Thanks Herk. I removed the cover and it is hard to tell if anything is damaged. The right button was bent in an odd shape off to the side. So, maybe that is the problem?.....

Was the camper "new to you"?
Sounds like the bellows is busted now though.

Use the link and order a new one. PLEASE post a photo of your bad one.
I have a burned out and a fuse link blown photo, but a bellows crush is a new one.

It is brand new, bought last summer from RV Wholesalers. Funny thing, I pulled the fuse and reset the breaker like you said and just flipped the switch and voila it fired up.... Not sure what to make of this. Doesn't seem reliable and this is what happened yesterday while camping. It was working fine and now seems to be sketchy.

Sounds like that crushed bellows is shorting out. Call RV Wholesalers and request that they send you a new DC Thermostat. You will need to take a picture of the crushed thermostat.

Here is the picture. So, the red push out button is very loose and seems broken. Is this the part I should order and replace?

If so what am I to order again?

Suburban RV Water Heater 12 Volt Thermostat 232282 | eBay

This link I posted before is the correct part.
The color of the reset button is not important.

Let us know how it turns out.
