My 2013 Crusader also does not light when when on. Only comes on when there is a problem. IMO, a dumb design. One can have either or both on at same time. A red light when on would prevent a lot of people from leaving on by accident.

Water Levels

Already knew that, at least the water heater was still full of water from our last trip out recently, plus DW had used the hose from our house which also kept the water heater full. Our sunnybrook has run very successfully in the past with both switch's in both modes with no problem. Whenever there is hot water in the heater, the electrical mode will cut off and only use the propane. Leaned that the hard way before we purchased the Crusader:

Install lighted switches when turned on such as mine.

Different trailers seem to have different setups! On ours, the inside water heater switch (blue light) controls the propane water heating only. To use electric heat a small rocker switch in the water heater compartment needs to be turned on. For really fast heatup, both can be used together. Just have to make sure the electric heater is off before draining the tank!
