Have you tested to see if the element is getting power.
Also look outside of your water heater. There might be a switch that need to be flipped out of storage mode or a fuse could be blown. Do you have a Suburban or Atwood water heater?

I literally have tried everything, including having thor email me all the schematics for the heating element. I finally gave up and took it to Camping World an hour away after talking to our service guy there. they are going to work on it today and hopefully get it back to me by Friday so we can leave on out Canada/Alaska month long trip.

Look outside

Open the outside water heater door look to see if there is a black switch in the lower left corner, make sure the switch in the lower left corner is on if your water heater has one. I had the same problem with another rv.
