We had a power outage for days.
Once up again, we obviously had no hot water. Waited but no hot water.
I replaced both thermostats, both heating elements, drip tube, with water off, tank heaters up water, once I turn the water pressure back on, the water iiib the tank cools to a warm temp and within 2 days, I never get hot again. I turn outside off and I immediately hear the water start boiling. What could it be?
You will burn up elements if there is no water in the tank when you power it up. There is a temperature adjustment on both thermostats. Most water heaters have 2 elements and 2 thermostats. The temp adjustment is a small white round thing usually, and behind the metal covers on the side.

Water Wont heat up
The heating elements can also lose their power because of a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse, so check the fuse box. Burner or pilot failure: For a gas-powered heater, a burner unit below the tank contains the gas jets that ignite to transfer heatto the water in the tank

What could be the problem when red ligth is flashing on the hot water tank control?
If its 1 blink every 3 seconds its normal operation.
Otherwise, this is the meaning of the various blinks:
No blinks = no poilet light (not enough power (in millivolts) to keep it lit.
2 flashes = insufficient voltage (in millivolts) to gas valve.
4 flashes = high water temperature (over heat sensor activated.
5 flashes = water temperature sensor failure.
7 flashes = gas control valve / thermostat failure.
8 flashes = Only occurs if the gas control valve or Temperature knob has been turned off And the thermocouple continued to produce electric power.
9 flashes = Combustion chamber temperature sensor open or shorted.
10 flashes = LDO occurrence was detected in the combustion chamber (contaminants).

How do you light pilot on Richmond water heater
Remove the pilot cover on the outside of the water heater. Turn the gas valve knob to "Light". Using a long fireplace match or long stem lighter light the pilot. Turn the knob to "run" or "on". Replace the cover. If it will not light or stay lit, you may need a new thermocouple. They are not that expensive, but replacing them yourself can be a pain.
