Please note in the picture above that when the electric element switch is up it is OFF.

Campers DIE for more hot water. I'd sell it.

If water heater comes on with inside switch off check switch and wiring. You can also pull the water heater fuse to verify.

Hot water all the time

The switch inside on the panel is off. We are in the middle of a forest so no hookups. The switch outside is on....should it be off?

When switch outside is on, 110V AC is going to the electrical heating element. It will heat the water when it is on (and burn out if you turn it on without water in the heater). Turn off if you do not need/want hot water. The heater tank will hold heat for quite awhile when not drawing off of it.

I keep it off unless I specificly want hot water from it, this way it doesn't get forgotten. You indicated being in the woods with no hookups, If you are running a generator feeding power to your unit then you are heating the water with 110v when the outside switch is on.

Well, "on" means on and "off" means off so if you want the water heater off the switch should be "off" and if you want the water heater on you should switch it to "on".

The inside panel switch is for propane and the switch outside is for electric.

Do you want the water heater off? Switch it to off.

Are you running a generator?
What are you doing for electricity - since you say you have no hookups?
