2008 Discovery hot water heater

During a camping trip my hot water heater begin boiling over with hot water out the water heater compartment and had to turn the switch off inside coach. Once the water cool down I turn the electric water heater switch back on but it never had hot water. My propane tank is currently empty and can not switch to propane. I am trying to trouble shot and u certain where I should begin.

Atwood? There should be a limit switch and thermostat switch on the panel. Those would be the least expensive parts to throw at it. There is also a fuse inline that you can test for continuity.

I found this helpful Atwood Water Heater Troubleshooting Just cleaning up the contacts is a good start.
