Both switches are "always" turned off as DW does that part. Could my switches be reversed or upside down? Kinda concerned as I don't want the water heater to burn out if it is actually being left on. However it does work while we are camping with it in the on position. Could the tank be that we'll insulated that the water remains hot that long?? Should I turn water heater to off position and let outside shower run til it get cold then see what happens. Thanks I advance for any replies/suggestions. Steve A. Dagro
Yes, a switch could be reversed/bad.
First off, we need some more details as to what brand/system you have in your RV. If it is a Suburban brand, does it have an electric heating element switch located on the front of the water heater?
When in use, do you heat your water by propane, or the electric heating element...or both.
If you do have a propane/electric water heater made by Suburban, this link may help to make sure you are using the switches correctly:
