How do I activate hot water in my Vista?

Greetings. Out for my first trip of the season, and I need to get hot water. Can someone remind/refresh me on how to open a valve, turn a screw, or do what I need to get hot water going in my 2017 Vista VE. The owners manual is not clear.
I am currently connected to city water, and do have running water in my rig.
Thanks in advance!

Enable coach batteries, ensure propane is available by opening main valve on the external propane tank (counter-clockwise turns, or via wall switch if applicable), open at least one hot water faucet to ensure you have water in the w/h tank. If the answer to this one is "no water flow at the "H" faucet" you may have a winterized water heater tank. Consult Owners Manual for valve settings to fill the water heater tank. If this cannot be performed or confirmed, ask someone for help at your location. DO NOT PROCEED to the next steps until you have a confirmed full hot water tank.

Press w/h switch to enable/ignite water heater, if it's close by, listen for clicking noise indicating DSI is trying to ignite propane, observe monitor panel or green light indicator in w/h on/off rocker switch to see if it has done it's thing, wait 5-10 minutes and check a "H" water faucet, for hot water.

I accept no liability implied or explicit for any damage or injuries associated with the prior instructions. They are given as a guide only, and the Owners Manual is the bible for doing this stuff. If it's confusing, best to ask someone at your location for help.
Good luck.
