Jeanny,
It gets easier once you've been on for awhile.

You can find a list of subforums for "most" Forest River brands on the home page sorted by Motorhome, General Travel Trailer & Fifth Wheel, etc. Here's a picture of what you want to look for to find Sandpiper.

I had the same question. I just got my 340RL last week. I do have a switch inside the camper on a panel. As I'm understanding, that switch turns on the gas side of water heater whereas the switch on water heater itself (with pin through it) is to heat via electric. Can I heat via gas and electric at same time for reduced heat time (as I could on my past camper)?

Triguy - since this switch and the many other aspects/functions/questions/comments about it are almost always popping up here, would it be possible to make it a "Sticky" topic if it is not one already.

I am not sure what the rules are for making a topic a "Sticky", but perhaps this might quality.
Just a thought.

VG idea, there are tons of repetitive questions to operation and layup of water heaters.

Thanks for reminding me of this question. I asked Triguy about this back on 09-07 and he hasn't answered yet.

It is a Suburban SW6DE.
I have looked pretty much everywhere but can't seem to find one.
Thank you in advance for any and all reply's.
Jeanny.
a couple of different post told u parts of it. the switch in the picture (with the pin thru it) is to turn on the electric element. (the pin has to be removed to turn the element on...that way it can't be accidentally turned on). on my older trailer, the switch on the inside controls the gas side. u can run both. with both on if the electric element can't keep up, the gas will come on with it.

a caution, don't turn the electric element (or gas) on unless u know u have water in the hw heater. the element won't last very long w/o water. there is a releaf valve near the top side of the hw heater with a lever on it. pull that lever and make sure u have water. best to do this when cold.

on mine, i leave the outside switch on and turn it off at the breaker inside. (its easier for me to check the breaker when i have questions abt it being on or off). i do this each time before i disconnect from water (don't want it running while at home plugged in w/o water hooked up).

urs may be somewhat different. i have read some that said they have two switches inside: one for gas and one for electric.
