Take a picture of it with the vent cover open and we will tell you for sure its gas, but might not be electric. Or simply post the model number here.

But I think you can add an electric element to it.

Then what are the two Push To Reset buttons? I know to fill the water heater with water before turning on, but if I'm hooked up to city water connection how do I do that?

Limit switches.
One for at temp and one for over temp.

It would be a sw6de for electric.

You open the pressure relief valve on the water heater.

To fill the tank, open the pressure relief valve (the tap at the top of the water heater). When water comes out, you're full.

You can also open a hot water tap inside, but I find the relief valve is easier.

Not only that but if the water heater bypass valves are in winter mode you could turn on the hot water tap and get water but the tank won't be full.

IT'S ALWAYS best to use the relief valve.

Thanks for the help everyone. Enjoying our first night out now. But have a couple questions.
1. Do you leave the water heater on all the time or just when needing to shower?
2. Our TT has the window unit AC. While running it most of the day the air seemed to become lukewarm by nighttime. I'm assuming we ran it to much?
