A truck mounted camper is called a "camper". A bumper pull camper is called a "camper". A fifth-wheel camper is called a "fifth-wheel camper". The second place I called for advise advertises as "Camperland". We don't like to use to many words down south when one world will do. lol.
As for the water heater. There was one thing I failed to mention. When you run completely out of hot water-no more water enters the camper. It just quits running. You have to go outside and disconnect the water hose from the camper, connect it back, and wah-la! you have running water inside again and as long as you don't turn on the water heater, you won't run out of water again.

It's a 2012 model- so like everything else these days, I'll bet its got some electronic switches and valves, and something has gone (even further) south. Probably a flow director valve with a safety switch that shuts off the water flow to the heater when there's no water in it, so as not to burn up the water heater.

You need to get a schematic of the electrical and water heating systems, probably from the manufacturer of the water heater. Is there anything in the documentation of the camper along those lines?

Also need to find a more knowledgeable RV repair outfit. . .

If it covers the bed, its a camper cover.
If it is self contained but sits in the bed of the truck, its a Slide In Camper.

Only things I can think of - An anti-scald shower valve when it fails will do that, or on my camper the hot and cold valves on the shower can be on, but if you don't turn the valve on the shower head itself on no water will run, but the hot and cold valves being on can back feed.

As said here, check the shower, inside and outside. On mine there are valves to run water anyway you want,you can bypass the heater or send all of the water through it. One thing about camper water valves is the T handles work backwards of anything else I have been around. What I think should be off(vertical water line and horizontal handle) is on
