Do you have the manual that came with your water heater?

I couldn't find the switch on mine either until I got right down on it with a small flashlight. The switch was completely hidden behind a small pipe in the lower left hand area. I camped with this unit for 2 years thinking I had a gas only water heater before I made the discovery. You may want to give another look.

My 2011 Lacrosse has an Atwood WH and does NOT have a switch outside on the heater itself. It also does not have an anode rod. I have a switch panel in the TT with an electric and gas switch with a red light between them (wish I had a photo handy for you). The red light only comes on when there is NO propane present at the WH.


My 2009 Wildwood had a Surburban WH and DID have the external switch. And it did have an anode rod. The inside switch panel only had 1 propane switch and the red light.

Both had a breaker in the converter panel also.

Hope this helps on the difference between the two makes of WH (at least the newer models, older models of each may be different altogether).

This is a photo of a Suburban water heater. The little rocker switch is the shore power AC heating element.

The "propane" switch is inside somewhere and has a red light next to it.
Here are the manuals for the most common ones.

Thanks for this ... Found my switch today, and as described locked in off (propane) position.
