I would assume water heater, as the furnace should be on a thermostat.

Yes the bottom one is for the water heater.

Depending on what brand it is there may be one on the water heater outside.

Suburban water heater , the switch is to run your water heater on electric instead of propane

To run on electric turn on the switch with the cotter pin. Be sure to turn off cotter pin switch when finished camping. To run on gas only, leave cotter pin switch off and turn on the switch inside the trailer that says HTR. Both switches do not need to be on to run on electric.

We turn on the internal switch (gas) when we know we are going to use a lot of hot water (showers) and then turn off when we are done.
