I had to ask, both of mine are inside.

I see no reason for the one in one out set up.

If you have never accessed your water heater from outside the RV, this may help in identifying the hatch to open up, Yours will probably be painted to match the RV:

forester 3121ds water heater

Looking at the 2:31 mark of this video, it appears your access panel is just behind the rear tires on your passenger side.



Assuming your 2014 rig is similar to this 2013 in the video, that is an awesome RV. You should really enjoy it.
Great info about the water heater it helps to answer my questions. Wife and I just returned from a 2,000 + mile trip and, yes, the Georgetown xl 377 is awesome and we thoroughly enjoy it.

Guess I should feel lucky having both inside. That way I know everything is off before I drain.

I agree but that is how it is setup. Otherwise I love the coach. It is a joy to drive and camp in.

Robert, was the outside electric heating element switch turned on, just to clarify for those who may read this forum later on in life when searching for answers to similar problems/questions?

Yes it was turned on. It was that way when we picked up from the dealer but didn't know it.
