I have no problem with flipping the switch, but wonder why does it have to be so secret?
Actually - I was hoping it was the electric hot water heater switch. Looks like we will be adding one in when we pick it up. One of many mods to come.

I just use the switch on the heater itself, but some people turn water heater on and off at the circuit breaker inside. (And some have added a switch inside). Once I have dewinterized and filled with water, I just leave it on because we use shore power at campground. If I do need to use the generator with other large loads like AC, then I switch off.
