Heritage GLen 27BH - WH question

We just bought a HG 27 BH

I know we covered at walk through but that was a lot of info
On the WH since it is both elec and gas, where are both switches?
I assuming the elec switch is the one on the panel and the gas part is the one outside where I take the cover off the WH and the little on/off switch in there

Mike

Also how do you drain the WH? just by draining the RV or is there a separate valve?

On my Hemishpere, the switch inside is for the propane. The switch outside at the water heater is the electric.

If you use the electric (outside), make sure that you shut it off when not camping, as it will boil the water out and burn the element up if it sits too long with no water in the tank.

To drain the water heater (make sure the the electric and propane to it is off), take out the heating element and open the releaf valve to allow more air to get into the tank.

In my HG272BH the LPG switch is inside and Electric switch is outside.

I drain mine by removing the 1&1/18" anode rod/plug and opening a faucet. Watch out for hot water!
