We have a 2004 Four Winds Infinity and just found on our last trip that our electric water heater was not heating the water so we used gas to heat the water.
Could the problem be a fuse or a heating element? All other electric sysytems appear to be in good working order.

Could be the thermostat on the tank. See if you have 120v to the heat element.

The thermostat can be an issue, but make sure that there is power to the 110 volt connection for the power feed to the temperature control board or relay. Could have come unplugged or just a loose connection in the circuit.

The power feed on my hot shot gets bumped at times and no power to the heating control circuit board for the AC element.
