As you can see the cons are REALLY minor items
I agree on this. You are right, no way to add a separate DVD player.

The tub also works great for the "breathing mobile washer" that I bought.

Amazon.com: breathing mobile washer

If I need to wash ONE thing, not enough for a "load," just get out the "looks like a toilet plunger but it's not" and use it in the tub!

Two ways, your central command panel will have a switch labeled "heater" also you can check at your water heater, remove the panel and you should see a small rocker switch there (lower left). If you do, make certain you have water in the heater tank before turning it on. The electric element will add to your total electric load so keep the total amp load below 30 amps.

Look in your water heater spot on the side. take the grill off. There should be a small electric switch.

Didn't know you could turn on both the electric AND propane switch at the same time. Actually, I did that on the (sssshhhhh don't tell Forest River) Fleetwood Jamboree that I used to own, only because I didn't know any better. I was just "turning everything on just to make sure nothing was off."

Ya there is a switch on the command panel above the fridge labeled water heater. Is that switch for gas or electric?

If that switch is not on will the water be heated via gas ?

I will look into the compartment outside for that other option

My error, sorry about that, I meant the circuit power panel, a 15 amp breaker dedicated for the electric element in the water heater. The switch outside at the water heater is the only on/off switch for the electric heating element. The one at the command center is for propane operation and yes, you can run them both at the same time.

All I see is a reset button outside on the heater panel?

Got a photo of this "switch" ?

First question: GAS

Second question: If that switch is not on, your water won't be heated unless you have the OTHER switch for electric on.
