2003 Bounder hot water heater

The water heater on my 03 bounder is not working correctly. The tank fills but when I turn the faucet on to hot water no water comes out. Any idea what the problem could be?

Are trying propane or AC? Could be an element. We also have a switch under our microwave hood for water heater/microwave so you don't overload on generator or shore power.

Yeah, empty water heater will burn out the element.

Welcome to irv2. Check to see if your water knobs in the outside service bay are in the on ( clockwise ) position. If they are , shut them off and try your inside again.

if propane, I found with mine that I had to light the pilot on the stove top before the water heater would ignite. I also found that the co2 switch on the floor has to be operating properly or none of the propane will flow in the system.
