Thank you all very much. I'm surprised there is the only one switch. Forest River makes a good camper and this seems a little on the cheap side. I like the idea of adding a switch next to the breaker. I could also use the breaker for the shut off. Still will have to remember to shut it off. Thanks again.

I wouldn't use the breaker to turn it on or off as it's not a switch it's a breaker.

I just went thru my PDI yesterday and that is the question I had about one switch only for the water heater. The tech said it was a move to prevent the burning up of heating elements. For those not so bright people, it makes them check the drain plug and fill the tank after draining the water heater. But this isn't any of us.

Adding a switch is not hard. Willis cracked this code some time ago.
