How do you turn the electric on to the hot water heater in the 351 DS

Where is the switch to turn the electric on for the water heater in a 2015 351DS? The switch on the control panel only turns it on in the propane mode. The model is SW6DE.

...yes... and be sure the water heater tank is full of water before you flip that switch.

You have asked a question that is often not really gone over in detail during dealer PDI's.

Here is a detailed tutorial that should help:

Suburban's electric switch and much more

Don't feel bad.
I resemble this.
My wife calls that "male pattern blindness".
I will look right at something and not "see" it.
Says me - Hey, I DON'T see it!
Says her - Here it is, and puts my hand on it...
Duh

I have the same water heater in my Windjammer. Found the same switch. Does it have to be on if you are running on gas to heat the water? I have been just filling the tank and then turning on the water heater switch on the inside control panel.


Thanks
