Just a reminder; you don't have to use BOTH electric and gas at the same time unless you're using a lot of hot water quickly. If hooked up at CG to 30 amp service, you can use just the electric side. If dry camping, use the gas side. Save your gas for cooking and furnace.
No better master class than lernin' by sperience.

Gas/electric water heaters have an electric switch on the outside.The water heater cover has to be opened and the switch is located in the lower left hand corner,it is behind a pipe and is very easy to miss.There may also be a clip thru the switch keeping it off.

your statement is not totally true .
my camper has and electric switch inside that circumvents the outside switch . just so you know by looking at the panel in post number 8 his is the same way .
so the switch outside on the hw heater can be off and the one inside can be on and still turn it on . just and fyi

dap, you are correct for most Suburban water heaters. The PT's have Atwood water heaters and they have electric and gas switches inside the trailer.
Look at the pics in my post #8 showing the location of the switches. That is the inside of the LaCrosse 303RKS, same as the OP's.

Thanks for your input though. That may save some confusion.

Gents,
All set up and everything works exactly the way you guys told me. Kudos to you guys and primetime for a "so far so good successful outing"! Right off the lot everything is working as it should.

Thanks again,
Mike

Well... First trip went ok, trailer towed good, basically everything functioned. Need to take it back to for 3 items not functioning so well, but all in all good trip. I am a little confused about 1 thing. After reading this forum I think I handled the dump situation ok. I rolled up to dump, people ahead of me had them throwaway sanitary gloves(added to needs list). Hooked up the hose, pulled black, after it stopped running I pulled the grey after that stopped, closed black, grey put sewer cap on and flushed out my hose and stowed it in bumper.

Here is where I am confused, I get home, go into bathroom, where the control panel is. Push battery (shows full charge), push black button(says E) push fresh water( 1/3 full), push grey (says E) and then push galley says 2/3 full. I assume the galley button is grey water from kitchen sink. Any ideas as to why it didn't drain out when I pulled the grey valve?

Does it have a separate pull handle?

I didn't see or find one, crawling around underneath, maybe some kind if diverter valve, that I didn't see or find.

Those tank sensors are terribly inaccurate, I wouldn't be surprise that it's empty and still reading. I have 3 tanks and 3 handles, maybe Gary or someone else who is familiar with the Lacross models will chime in.

The 303RKS's galley drain runs from the back of the trailer (location of tank) to the dump valve and the pitch of the drain is very gradual. So if you're tt is high in the front while dumping the galley may not drain completely.
I've ran into the same as you. Since then I make sure the front and street side of the tt is low. The tanks drain completely when I do this.

Hope this helps you.
