2012 coachmen catalina 32 bhds - water heater help

Hey Guys/Gals,

Our water heater has been working great for the last two years. We keep the water hooked up at all times since we are seasonal at our local provincial park. Last night, the water heater just stopped working.

I have checked the breakers, tried to reset the heater from the outside (neither of the buttons would move) and there is still lots of water in the tank.

Does anyone have any suggestions that I may have missed?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Check for 110v at the element. Also check for 110v at the limit switch, also disconnect the wire's from the element and ohm it out to make sure it is working and you are getting a reading, so you got a switch, limit switch, and element. Has to be one of them stopping power, my bet would be the limit.....will it heat on propane?

Does the gas work? If so, then it may be the heater element.

Honestly, we didn't even notice until this morning. I will have to go up tomorrow night and try the gas to see if it works.

I'll bring up my ohm meter as well. Thanks again for the suggestions.
