If it's an older trailer, it might be gas only.

Can anyone else with a 2012 28BH post a pic of theirs? for comparison.. I think Forest River likes to throw in whatever they have laying around at the time.

I think the DSI heater was an option... I could be wrong though

You certainly do have gas only.
These are of one with both 120VAC and gas.

The big round black plastic circle covers the electric heating element and the black switch turns it on an off. The white switch with red light is for the propane ignition system (the red light works like the fridge's check light).

Ya I thought so. Doing some research online and there are a lot of listings for the 28BH with a 6gal turbo water heater, and a lot for a 6gal DSI water heater. One dealership listed the DSI as an option so im guessing that is not an option I got.

The picture of the switch is to light the gas for the water heater. (turn it on and the red light come's on, it click's for a sec. or two, and red light goes out. The gas is lit) On the water heater itself, the black switch on bottom left behind silver tube is for electric.

yep...Good ol Forest River. Just one of the things you forget to look at at the dealership. And of course they arent going to point that out

Oh well...back to manually lighting it like my pop up was. At least I know exactly how to do it! lol

Yep, your water heater is manual light, just like my 26BH and the switches are for certain interior lights and the outside light, but it appears they are wired backwards as in the left switch should be for outside and right switch interior lights. Oh well.

On our Grey Wolf 26BH the Electric DSI water heater was an option and it was $125.00. Dealer asked if we wanted it since we ordered ours and it had to be built. We did get it. Once I figured out how to turn the electric only option on it was nice.
