Where would the fuse be for my hot water tank. It is a direct spark ignition. I have checked the box with the fuses all are marked but none mention hot water tank

It would be listed as W/H or water heater and there should be a 120v breaker and a 12 v fuse. There are also some reset buttons on the heater itself. Might try resetting these.

Those fuses are not famous for their labels. It's likely combined with something else. What is the issue? How about pulling the 15 or 20 amp fuses to see which one makes the light go off on the switch that turns on the water heater (if it has a lighted switch)?

My propane refrigerators have all required 12 volts for the controller and ignitor.

I did borrow a 1970's vintage trailer once that had a pilot light and no electronics. Anything somewhat modern is going to require 12 volts.

Can you get us the make and model? Guessing it's an Atwood here's a few things.

WATER HEATER LOCK OUT - GAS PRESENT BUT NO SPARK
High tension lead wire loose --- Secure wire connection on circuit board

Electrodes loosely attached to main burner --- Secure electrodes to main burner

Improper electrode gapping --- Re-position spark gap to 1/8? and into path of flame

Dirty electrodes --- Clean electrodes

Wires loose in electrode porcelain --- Replace electrodes

Cracked porcelain on electrode --- Replace electrodes

Defective circuit board --- Replace circuit board

looking at the service manual at BryantRV (water heaters are at the bottom under miscellaneous) Link

It looks like there is a resettable circuit breaker on the side of the tank. you might see if the button is popped popped out. There is also a troubleshooting section near the bottom that you can run through with a digital volt meter if you have one. If you do not have a meter they are fairly cheap at Walmart or even Harbor Freight. We can also help you use the meter to perform any needed checks.
