X2. If you have a Suburban heater there is a switch outside on the heater itself as well as a switch somewhere inside, usually with a red light next to it and there is probably a breaker in the power center for it also.
If it's an Atwood heater, there is no outside switch but, the other 2 inside should be the same.
