Default 07 Tour Master T40C water heater

I recently purchased an used TM T40C and I am getting no hot water inside the house. Both switches are on and the voltmeter says the electric heating element is good. The water is hot coming out of the heater's relieve valve but not inside the house. I've looked to see if there is a bypass valve that might be open and mixing cold and hot water between the heater and the house to no avail and the outside shower valves are turned off. Unless the water temperature is dropping that drastically between the heater and the house I am at a loss here.
Pilot won't come on either and it still cold at night so I might boiling water to shower for the near future or start replacing components.
Has anyone had similar issues or know of anything else I might need to check?
Thanks

Victor,

Your T-40C has a water distribution manifold in the bay just in front of the curb side rear wheels. There are individual shut-off valves for just about everything in the coach on an independent circuit... The red valves in the left column are the hot distribution and the blue valves in the right column are the cold distribution.

Be sure that the valve at the bottom of the red stack is set to OFF (valve #9) otherwise your heater is in the bypass mode as might be used for winterizing, etc.

Chuck

...and when operating on propane, there is no pilot light on the water heater -- it is DSI.

Thank you Chuck, that was the issue. Electric works just fine, LP side not so much but not a whole lot time to work on it while I travel east.
