1st trip out in 264..Impressions..Question?

Took the new Surveyor 264 out to see what bugs it had. Overall we are pretty impressed and very happy with our purchase. Few problems ; screen door hangs up at top of door frame.
Anyone know how to adjust that?
Question...
Water heater works great on propane.
On electric,the water does not get nearly as hot.
Is that normal or do I have a problem?

electric takes much longer to heat the water, compared to propane.
so, don't expect the same time frames.

it isn't a time issue. We had it on all night and the next morning the water wasn't much more than 110*. I'm going to fill it with water, plug the trailer in and hit the reset button and see what I have in the A.M.

Temp setting must be to low, I have the same trailer and I just keep both on when plugged into a CC. the recovery time is much faster.

temp setting is pre-set from the factory and non-adjustable.

When I'm at a campground I prefer to use "their" electric to heat my water and save "my" propane for when I boondock. I've got it going now, I'll update in the AM.
