Has anyone wired a switch inside your RV for the electric waterheater? Our gas switch is on the control panel indoors but the electric switch is outside. Any thoughts?

Took out old stereo we never used and replaced it with fabric storage boxes- convenient!
Converted toilet area storage cupboard space into TV area for 44" TV for living room. That put it up higher so people don't get in the way of viewing as much. I can still store towels and sheets behind the TV, too!
Since we live here permanently, we replaced the steps with wooden ones- only 25 bucks delivered!

One problem I want to fix- our queen bed mattress is of a silky material and keeps sliding around on the platform. That's ok for changing sheets, but not for sleeping. Ideas?

How do I attach Velcro to the mattress? From my experience the sticky kind doesn't stick well to fabric?

Dunno. Have to think about that....

Thanks

I've been considering doing this.
1. Find circuit breaker for electric hot water heater. (turn off LOL)
2. Run hot wire from CB to new switch (120 volt, 15 amp) on control panel.
3. From the new switch use the return wire in the romex (3 wire and ground 14 guage) back to the circuit breaker and attach to wire to the hot water heater. or you can run back to the hot water heater itself.

This is the basic circuit to add a switch inside for electric hot mater heater. All you are doing is adding a single pole switch to turn on and off. If you have a switch with a light you will use the white wire (neutral) back to the electric panel and common neutral buss.

Problem is its almost impossible to wire anything new because everything is very difficult to pull apart and gain access
