10g Hot Water heater Electric Switch

2008 Georgetown 373ds. First post. Did a search and didn't see this addressed. Has anyone tried or is it possible to move the electric rocker switch on the 10g hot water heater to somewhere inside the coach? Can't figure out why this wasn't done when built/installed? Sure would be easier just to switch on or off inside when needed. Thanks

It is already there. It is in your circuit breaker panel.

I put a illuminated switch on the wall near the breaker panel. Just run a wire from the breaker to the switch and attach the wire, that was on the breaker, (from the heater) to the switch. The switch is literally in series with the breaker and the heater. This gives you indication and you don't have to open the breaker panel.

Breaker's are not really designed to work as switches, and will eventually quit working, so a switch is a good idea, especially if you are switching on and off often.

May be wrong, but by turning off breaker doesn't it cut power to electronic ign for running on propane also ?

Electronic ignition for propane is 12v.
