Hot water heater Switch location - Sandpiper 330RL

Hello every one,
My question is?
In our new 2012 Sandpiper 330RL FW
Is there a switch located anywhere on the inside to turn the heater to electric
Or just the toggle switch on the unit itself and the circuit breaker?
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.

I don't have your TT, but I have had three and all three there is a switch inside the TT to turn on the gas side of the water heater. The electric side there is a switch behind the water heater access panel on the outside. On all of my TT it was/is lower left, behind some of the gas tubing. Some people leave it on all the time and use the circuit breaker to turn it on and off. I don't like to do that because I always make sure there is water in it before I turn it on. If there is no water in it you will burn out your electric element.

Jeanny,
Are you asking if your 5er has a duplicate electric switch inside the trailer in addition to the one Great White shows in his picture?

Just curious, is something wrong with your HWH on electric right now?

Yes Triguy, I was wondering if there was a switch somewhere on the inside because some of our previous Rv's would have them in either a cabinet,under the sink,behind a bed or hidden somewhere. Nothing wrong with the HWH...knock on wood.....but Thank you for asking!
I am sure that I will be back here with lots more questions in the future. Thanks again!
Jeanny

Well, that's refreshing to read

Usually, its a report of a problem. Nice to hear you're being proactive with this.

I'm going to move this thread to the Sandpiper subforum. Maybe other Sandpiper owners can help.

Triguy,
Thank you!
I am still trying to find my way around. Where do I find the Sandpiper forum?

If your DH is handy, like mine is, he can put a lighted switch inside. He located ours on the front of our sink which also contained an outlet. He got a new 4-gang electrical box, ran the wires under the sink and put the outlet in one side and the lighted switch in the other. Now we can see at a glance if the water heater is on! Since we don't drain the water heater after every trip (we're using the TT almost every weekend) there is no chance we'll turn it on with no water in it. I love it!! I dont' have to ask him to turn the water heater on, and it is one of the things on my checklist to take care of so we'll have hot water just a short time after arrival.
