Most RVs use the same appliances as there are only a few manufacturers. Heating is by way of the propane fired furnace. The furnace runs on 12volts for the fan and is most likely made by Suburban.
Your water heater is most likely a gas/electric. Most units made in the last 5 years or so come standard with them. However you will NOT have a switch inside the rig to turn on the electric element in the water heater. This is found on the heater itself behind the access door on the outside of the rig. They are small switches and located sometimes behind the gas pipe making them hard to find. You can run both elec and gas at the same time on the water heater.
The Duotherm thermostat more than likely is because it probably controls the furnace as well as one of the roof air conditioners (not always the case though) Does it have a Heat/cool switch on it? A picture would be best on that for us to help.
RVs do not come with "owners manuals" like a car does, what they do come with is very vague. You can find most documents online from the appropriate manufacturers web sites.
