Looks like the switch I had on 2005 Rockwood for the heated tanks.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

You might be interested in modifying the (propane) HWH switch. The switch is backwards to every other switch (down is ON). Buy an illuminated rockerswitch from an autoparts store (I chose blue). You will also need a spade connector, a short piece of wire and a test meter. The existing switch will have two wires with connectors and the new one will have three. The third is a ground for the "light". Attach the new connector/wire to it and over to the ground connection on the fault light. Now when I turn on the HWH, it glows blue and it reminds me to turn it off when I want to save on propane and use electricty to maintain hot water in the tank.
