CHECK THE FUSES AND CIRCUIT BREAKERS IN THE CONVERTER BOX. MAKE SURE THE 110V SWITCH BEHIND THE WATER HEATER IS TURNED ON. IF THERE IS POWER AND "ALL" THE 110V SWITCHES ARE ON, TIME TO OHM OUT THE HEATING ELEMENT, LOCATED UNDER THE BOX BEHIND THE WATER HEATER.
IN ORDER TO HAVE 12V AT THE CIRCUIT BOARD, 112V POWER HAS TO GO THRU THE RELAY. SOUNDS LIKE U HAVE A WIRING PROBLEM SOMWHERE, EITHER AT THE SWITCH OR AT THE WATER HEATER SOMEWHERE.

I am a RV service tech and that is an old unit. Your control board is bad but with the age of that unit I would strongly suggest replacing the whole water heater, you can shove a pile of money at it and still have an old water heater when for 3 to 500 bucks you can have a new one with a 2 year warranty

Obviously breakers are marked wrong, and good thing you checked. I always double check as well, seeing how I've found many mislabeled right from factory, or perhaps previous owners switched them and never changed original labeling. I need to ask though, are you sure the light is not just for the electronic ignition for the propane? Most have a red light to indicate propane side did not light when tried, and no light for hydro side. Have you also checked for another switch on side of cover at back of water heater where you see hydro cable going in to it? I guess I should ask as well, if you've owned this motorhome for a while, or is it new to you? I'm not trying to be sarcastic, but sometimes I forget to ask that and then find out they're new at this.

SOURCE: Switch left on now Atwood
If no water in it when switch left on for hydro use, you probably burned out the element. They burn out pretty quick when no water. You have to shut off breaker to it for safety, and remove back cover where you see hydro cable going in to access it.
