Water heater

2 questions: what does FLT mean on the control panel? If you have the switches on for both electric and gas, are they both on simultaneously?

FLT means fault. It illuminates after the water heater tries to light on gas three times and fails. You then need to turn the water heater off to reset. It will also illuminate for a few seconds on initial fire up on gas. Once the water heater lights, the light should go out.

Yes if you turn both switches on, both systems (gas and electric) will operate simultaneously. It's perfectly fine to do so.

wmtire will be along shortly with links to good reading material about your water heater.

LOL, is that like the bat signal.

5picker is referring to this thread, which explains the operation of a Suburban type tank style water heater (which you may have). Even if you had an Atwood brand, the fault/flt/reset lamps all work the same as explained in this thread link below (posts #1 and # 5):

Suburban's electric switch and much more
