Thanks Everyone! When I woke up this morning the water heater came on perfectly. I suppose the water in the line was too hot.

At first I was a little confused with the hot water switches in the bathroom as it was not clear as to the on/off position. Also do not have both the electric and propane on at the same time.

I think they are designed to be used in both gas and electric modes together for quick heating or recovery. We have used it that way, the gas shuts off when the water is hot, can't tell what the electric is doing. We shut them both off at night or when gone for awhile.

But why not turn both on at the same time?

Yes, you can use both electric and propane at the same time. This reduces the heating time in half. Good idea to use the propane every once in a while to prevent bugs and spider webs from accumulating.

Electric element inside AS cabinet. You may be able to remove panel to access, most likely will have to pull the WH out "a bit" to get access.. At least on our 34 footer.

Here's a snapshot from the Atwood manual that shows where the electric element is.
