How did you do this, this sounds like the way to go...

If you want to run a lighted switch for the Hot water Heater you should be comfortable with wiring AC. There is a receptacle where the Water Heater plugs into under the sink. May have to remove the plywood divider. Splice the hot wire (black) to about 4 feet of 14/2 gauge wire and run to a switch with an LED (available at HD or Lowes). I took the existing receptacle that was under the sink and installed a double box with that receptacle and the switch in that location. Then just tie the other wire from the switch into the hot side of the receptacle for the Water Heater. Leave the switch on the Water Heater on as well as the Circuit Breaker that supplies AC to the WH.

If you do a search I think there was a post with a better description on this mod and I believe had some pictures.....

You could cut the power from the Circuit Breaker that supplies the water heater and put a switch somewhere convenient if that's all it supplies.

All right, just got back from our 1st trip with the new camper.... Was great, only issue we had was that the guy that sold it to us forgot to tell me he had shut the bypasses on the water heater... No hot water.... So a friend of mine and myself over many beers, found the 2 bypasses behind the water heater turned them on and like magic, there was Hot water..... Now need to get the kit to winterize the camper and wait till next spring to bring her out again.... Really happy with it, can't wait to get a full season next year....
