Does my 2013 vengeance 306v have both110 electric and propane hot water tank ...

Hey gang, my first post and I'm a one week old owner of a used 5th wheel th. I've been going through all the systems on the trailer and discovering as I go, and today's discovery was a 15 amp breaker labelled w/h, which I can only assume is water heater. I assumed it would be 12v/propane, but maybe it's both... Can anyone confirm, and if so, which one take priority and here's why I'm asking.. It's still winterized, but I've had it plugged in to my house, running the furnace and such (propane on) but the 12 volt switch on the tank monitor has been OFF, but the 110 breaker next to w/h has been on... Just don't want to burn up anything before getting our beauty out on a trip.

Most likely you have a Suberban water heater which is propane/electric...see thread below for more info...

Suburban's electric switch and much more

We could tell better if you had taken a picture of the heater with the access door open, or if you'll post a model number taken from the unit itself.

However, it looks like the first breaker above the mains COULD say WH, but it's illegible.

Water heater appears to be the 15 amp on the far left outside the tripped air conditioner 20 amp. Yes, both AC and Propane (12 volt required for propane) water heater.

So here's the water heater, and it looks like (thankfully) that the switch was off for the 110v element. Does anybody know if there is a priority for one or the other, or can I run them simultaneously? (Electric/propane). ThanksClick image for larger version

No priority and yes they can be on at the same time. However; do not ever have the 120 volt electric heating on without water in the heater. The element will burn open in just a few seconds. You should get faster recycle of hot water with both on.
