Mostly yes turning on a hot water tap helps the process.

Mostly yes, except if your trailer has a bypass kit installed and it is bypassed. Look for valves at the water inlet/outlet of your heater with a pipe between them. There were different styles installed, two manual valves, a manual valve and a check valve, and some older units, three manual valves, the common thread is there will be a pipe between them. If it is electric, make sure it is full before turning it on.

Yes if it has a bypass the tank will not fill you will still have water at the taps but the tank will not fill up easy to tell open the overpressure valve at the top of the tank behind the heater outside door it should spit water and air out.

leaks????

I might add, that if your tanks has a leak, or leaks, of sorts, then it's not a big deal to fix.
I had an older 85 TT and found mine was leaking water. So, I removed it and carefully removed all the insulation and then notice a few tiny pinholes and a couple of larger pinholes. Obvious indication of metal fatigue and age.
I use that product by Permatext called COLD WELD and started to cover the holes. Before coating I scratched it up with a fine grade sandpaper just for grip. I would make several over coat patches so to overlap each coat by 50%. I did this after the original coat had cured. Before re-wrapping the insulation I temporarily installed it, filled the water, turn it on as a water heater and waited, waited and waited some more. I drained it, filled it up again and repeated the process. I guess my overkill worked because it never leaked again. I removed the tank and re-wrapped the insulation and was a happy camper after that. Patience is a virtue. A lot cheaper than a new tank or an unknown used tank
