Hot water tank: Gas and/or Elect.
Hi, I own a '99 Cardinal 5th wheel.
I have the hot water tank filled and its heated by propane. I have hot water. I was wondering if I can run the tank on elect only.
After I had hot water I looked under the outside panel and this is what I found;
It does have a rocker switch located under the outside panel. That switch was OFF. I switched it ON.
In the kitchen is also a rocker switch w/ a reset light next to it. That has been ON. The switch that is, not the light.
After I switched on the outside rocker, I ran some hot water in the sink and the gas fired up shortly after to heat the tank.
Does the tank need both Gas/elect to heat the tank? I was under the impression that the tank can be heated with elect power only, or gas only. PLease educate me. I'm baffeled. (I'm hooked to power and hoping to save $$ on propane. I don't have to pay for the elect hook up.)
