a 2014 probably has the DUAL Atwood Propane and Electric water heater, right? If like our 2014 Palazzo, you have both a switch for either power source, or both at the same time. Which do you have ON?

if you are just asking about the ELECTRIC element, the switch must be ON, and you must be plugged into WORKING shore power, whether 15/20amp, 30amp, or 50amp, and make sure that it's BREAKER is not tripped(the water heater Breaker, in your RV's main panel), and your SHORE POWER breaker.

what 'shore power' are you plugged into?

I would check wires in back, sometimes get corroded, make sure clean and tight connection.

If you plugged into shore power with the water heater on & empty the heating element is done for.
In a 7+ year old water heater it's also possible the element has lived our it's lifespan. Pull it out & take it to about any hardware store for a matching replacement.
If it's a Suburban brand take the black cover off of the the reset buttons & check the wiring to the thermostats, it's been an issue that the cover pinched the wires against the tank shorting them out.
