Water heater electric side not heating

2007 diesel journey. The electric part of the water heater just stopped working. Propane heater still working. What is the first thing I should look at? Breaker is on . Red toggle switch is lit up. Thanks

I am still looking into this so I am not sure if this is something designed into the system as a safety or something wrong with the system. We had the same thing happen on our 2019 Adventurer on trip before last. What I did: I turned off propane and electric and then turned off main breaker at the post. cycled it all back on and electric has worked for a month now without any other issues.

Check the connection at the element. Check the element.
Is it an Atwood or Dometic HWH?

Atwood. How do I co or replace the element?
I'm fairly handy easy or do I need a mechanic?

Here is the Atwood Water Heater Service Manual which has troubleshooting, diagnosis, and repair procedures (also a parts list);

A standard HWH element wrench comes in handy if you find it's needed.
