Water Heater - Turn gas on/off using rocker switch in/on inside control cluster. Turn on electric element using switch mounted on bottom left corner of the water heater, behind the outside access door. It is good practice to turn off the electric heater when you are not using the trailer but it remains plugged in. Be absolutely certain to turn off switch on water heater anytime you drain the system and leave the trailer plugged in. Otherwise you will burn out the heating element in the water heater in a big hurry if there is no water in the heater tank. Run water heater on both or either.

Refer - Use button on frame, just as you suspected, to change from gas to electric.

Handle may be emergency handle for tongue jack - if you had an electric jack installed.

Exactly what dimurrrw said about turning the water heater off when not in use.

Another thought on the handle though. It could be for the manual over-ride for the slide? Just thinking. My manual over-ride is nut that I can hook my cordless drill or a socket wrench to to bring it in or out if the electrics fail.

Steve,

NICE looking rig man!! You done good! Congrats!! Anytime you plan on headin to North Texas, I've got 30amp service and a big back yard.

I noticed the Big Back yard....I only have an acre 1/2......I get good backing practice as you can see by my driveway......and the tightness of the "parking" area. The emer. slide handle is long and skinny. I will post the pic tonight around 5 EDT. I also noticed that having the electric element on, running refer and A/C made too much draw......the A/c made funny sounds.....went back on normally after I killed the electric element.

Hey...I found your post!

Nice rig. Looks like everyone beat me to the answers.
One suggestion:
Try the water heater on electric only.
My last DSI water heater always quit working on electric mode for some reason...so I always used it in gas mode.
Never saw a handle like that in the pic. Weird though.

PS...your yard looks like a nice campground!

Yeah it's kind of a gem.....I have a Richmond PO, but live in chesterfield County (best schools) and probably have the largest lot within 20 sq. miles. Hopefully will be worth something someday being so close to the city.
