It's lower than that...bottom left hand corner and its a toggle switch, think ours has On/Off written on it.

8289 Hot Water heater photo

Here is a photo of my hot water tank. Are the two black buttons the key?

First order of business...get good tires! Lost ALL 4 tires and rims our 1st trip out. We're warned by other RVer's but didn't think they could be that bad. WRONG!

The model number of the HWH will hold the key as to whether it is gas only, or gas and electric.

Suburban HWH's used to have a part number like SW6D. or SW6DE, the first being gas only (DSI ignition) and the second being DSI & electric.

What is the model number?

Look for the tag inside the door, or look at the build sheet for your RV.

Very far bottom left corner is where my on off switch is. Looks like your water heater differs from mine.

The switch is in the same place as posted above. All 8289WS come with it. Yours would be a first if it didn't. Behind the black rubber is your limit switches. There is a clip that runs through the rocker switch it has to removed to turn it on....

Mine is a sw6D, so I guess that is the answer. Thanks to everyone that commented on my question.

If that is what they put in then you have the WRONG W/H for that unit. That wouldn't be the first time they put something in wrong. I have not read the new specks on the unit, dose it say gas only W/H? I would be calling FR and find out. So you are the first? How cheap can they be getting? You want duel IMO. They have always did it, so what now why the change I would be on them with full force. You WANT the option and also the option for using both together for a faster recovery. I wouldn't drop the issue if I were you....Good Luck sorry they cheapened a great unit....

I think they put the wrong unit in yours. The sw6d wasn't even an option. Our 2015 came with the gas electric as standard equipment.

Dog piling...X2 what Glenn & Heavyodie said. I would push for a HWH replacement. The electric+gas is a BIG deal when you have several folks taking showers (we have occasional 'house guests' and NEVER run out of hot water even with 4 adults queued up for showers.
