Not all of the Suburbans electric heating element switches are made for easy access to the lockout pins. Neither of my current two trailers are and it would be almost impossible to insert the pin in front of the switch. They didn't even have the lockout pins when I bought them, but the dealers may have just thrown them away.

Even with the pin, you still need to be reminded to put it in place for it to do any good........thus the tag.

I have also read where others had the good idea to use clothespins to remind themselves of the little things... like turning off the water heaters electric heating element and cranking down the television antenna. They just write the words "antenna" and 'water heater' on the pins...then attach them to their trailers coupling hitch anytime they use these items. This way, you can't hookup to your tow vehicle without seeing/removing the clothespins to remind yourself about the aforementioned items.

You just keep the clothespins on the antenna crank handle or in front of the water heater when you are not using the items. Pretty straightforward and simple.
