Help! Gas water heater is inop 1995 Gulfstream C class

Plugged into a 30 amp service and to city water. Water manual valve is on normal.

Water heater: Suburbam 6W6D gas with electric spark (no spark is heard)

RV model: W6293ZH

There is no on/off switch to be found on my 1995 Gulfstream Yellowstone Capri I bleed the system of air and the propane is on/full. Stove works great. Pressing reset does nothing.

All I gave is a reset switch... there are no other switches in the water heater are even though it mentiions there is one. All 12v fuses are good and circuit breakers are on.

See attached pic. Any suggestions? Thks

You don't mention if this is RV is new to you or if it has been working and just stopped.

Not familiar with your specific RV, but generally the water heater switch is located inside the coach, usually near the water pump switch, but some manufacturers like to play hide and seek with the switches for some reason. Sometimes they are labeled with the words water heater, but sometimes they aren't. Some have a picture of a flame and they often have a red light either integral to the switch or next to it.

Forgive me if you already know all this, but as I said you didn't give any background. If you know where the switch is and you're sure its on, the next step would be to check for blown fuses in the DC fuse panel. If the switch is on and all fuses are good, then there's some real trouble shooting to do. Assuming you have power to the control board and the unit is switched off and then back on, you should hear attempts to ignite the burner.
