Suburban water install help

I'm a new owner of a 2006 Coachman, Spirit of America, travel trailer owner and I have replaced my water heater with a SW10DE. I do not have a switch for the 110 for the electric element (future hook up later) but I currently have a switch for LP ignition on the panel by the sink. So the dilemma is how to wire the new water heater. Non of my colors on the wires match up. SW10DE has a Blue, Green & Brown wire but at the rear of the coach I have a Red, White, Blue & Brown. Do I just hook up the browns, blues and ground the green to the unit and leave the red and white on the coach loose? Any suggestions?

your new WH should have had a installation guide. red is 12v in to the switch. brown is power out to WH. green is ground. blue is power back from WH to indicator light.

The wiring diagram should be on the right side of the heater facing the outside for 12v and left side facing for the 110v. If you pull the switch inside you can note the wire colors and using a meter confirm at the appliance. The 110v has a switch on the face of the heater for ac power. This is not bypassed if you install another switch inside.
