DSI fault switch

I have a 2011 Rockwood 8315BSS that we purchased a few weeks ago and are still learning how to use everything. There is a red LED light that has DSI fault in between the two tank heater switches. Could someone enlighten me as to what its purpose is? Thanks, your help is appreciated.

That is the gas ignition light for your water heater. With the water heater switch on the electric flame ignition will try to light the gas. If no gas is available or there is some other failure of the igniter circuits the light will remain on. If it lights ok the light will go off.

After 10 attempts the system will LOCK OUT further attempts so you then must go out and reset the system using the rubber covered reset button.

If you are heating with AC, (rocker switch outside) the gas switch inside can be off. It can also be on to give a faster recycle time for several showers since the gas heats water faster than electric.

On a side note, you probably shouldn't over tighten that!

That tells you how new the camper is. I haven't had time to remove all stickers. And boy we are so ready for this nasty weather to leave Texas so we can start enjoying it.
