No no not what Im saying. If your hooked up and have water in the lines and heater tank you can certainally turn it on. And leave it on as long as your camped. I assumed you were at home and checking things out. My bad.
You can run the WH on either electricity or gas, your choice. We usually run ours on electricity as it is cheaper. To ensure I dont burn up the electric heating element I always choose to flip the breaker off as part of our checklist prior to departing. See I leave my trailers plugged in at home too. I just installed a brand new water heater day before yesterday after 11 years of use.

Understood. We have been in it for one weekend. At the end of which we got hot water. Then we shut off water and propane and can't figure how to get hot water on. We still can't find the switch for electric hot water.

Go outside, take the water heater cover off, or open it. You will see at the bottom left behind the gas valve a small switch. On, electricity flowing. Off no electricity to the heating element. Directly above that there is a black plastic cover, with two rubber buttons. Left button resets 120 volt side high limit switch. Right side resets 12 volt side high limit switch. Bottom middle black cover covers the electric heating element. If you accidentally powered the electric element without water in the tank, kiss your element good bye. Luckily you can buy a new one if necessary at any big box store for around 10 dollars.
Take a picture if necesary and I will walk you thru stuff

Tank heater switch turns on the holding tank pad heaters. Used in cold weather camping.
Hi limit switches. Used to control or shut down when water in the tank reaches preset temp. Dont want 200 degree hot water now do we.
Dont worry, it gets easier. I spent hours with a lable maker marking everything when we first got our creek in 2005. Since then I have added about 4 more things to the panel.

If you need to talk more about your new toy, send me an email at lilbro1945@yahoo.com and we can exchage phone numbers. Glad to help you if I can.
