Don’t have enough information about the make and model of your water heater, but check to see if 120 volts between the terminals on the heating element. If the voltage is there, then the element is bad and needs to be replaced.

I'll bet money the 120VAC heater element is failed. This is nothing special to RV's, the difference is mounting, screw-in or bolt-in, and total length. Any hardware store carries them. You will need the huge hex socket for the screw-in, which again is the same as a residential water heater.

If your water heater has the depth to accommodate the long style, it is a slightly higher wattage than the short style.
