I read grammar issues, misspellings, and all sorts of terrible writing in posts. As long as the information is clear- what would I gain by correcting the person? Nothing. I'd just look like a pedantic butthole. Same thing with "water heater" vs. "hot water heater".

Seems pointless.

My 2014 came with the Atwood, I run it off power when using the trailer, no point in using the propane.

I find heating hot water redundant.

Like saying a refigerating refrigerator or cooling refrigerator, illuminating lights, blowing fans.

Refrigerator- energy extraction cabinet.
Water heater- thermal injection container.

We could develop new terminology for everything (-:

Well, heading home shortly. First trip was great. I turned the switch on, and ran my water heater on electric the entire time. No breaker issues at all with a/c (15k), fridge (on electric), and water heater the entire time. I do have a water heater question.

Now that I turned that switch on, if I am not plugged in, and that switch is left on, will the water heater still work off of propane or do I need to turn switch off for that?
