Hi and welcome to FRF!
There is no model-specific nor brand-specific owners manual.
RV Manufacturers only provide a generic owners manual with no model-specific nor brand-specific information. Just basic RV system information.
Check the WH bypass valves configuration. Could be in winter bypass mode.
Is your TT 30amp or 50amp?

Welcome to the forum!

Things to check:

1. As noted, check the valves at your hot water boiler. The bypass valve is on a short section of pipe that goes between the hot and cold lines. Confirm that it is CLOSED. It is closed when the handle is perpendicular to the pipe. The other valves should be open (handles inline with the pipes).
2. Make sure you have checked that the propane tank is full and is ACTUALLY turned on. Go to the valve and CONFIRM it, don't go by memory! People have had this issue before!
3. Run the stove top or furnace to confirm that you have a good supply of propane to the appliances and that the air is purged out of the line.
4. Did you make sure that the boiler was full of water BEFORE engaging the electric element? If not, you may have damaged the element.

Let us know how you make out.
