Question about RTO Atwood DSI-RV Water Heater-6 Gallon
If you failed to turn off the breaker before you emptied the tank then the element had no water to cool it. It would have blown a hole in it. If it is ok by some miracle then try turning off the breaker and turning it on again. As for the sound it would only do that if there was a large vapour lock.

turn the power off and flush it out by letting the tap run for an hour or so
i think it could have lime scale in it or the element is about to blow if its the type that you can get the top off look inside it you may see the fult even kettle cleaner may be needed to clean it out, but dont go drinking that water???

Check that the by-pass valve(s) on or near back of water heater are in the proper position. If your stumped on how they should be for normal operation, remember this. Cold water has to flow into bottom of tank, so that valve needs to be open straight into that fitting. Then the hot comes out the top, so that valve has to be open as well. Any valves in between those lines need to be closed, otherwise it will mix cold and hot . If still not sure, get back to me, with location of any valves there, and I'll guide you through it.
