2012 27WP Hot Water Heater

Am I off the mark here, or is the HWH a gas only model? I don't see anything electrical by the HWH or in the electrical panel and don't see a bypass switch. The dealer showed me how to light the pilot and didn't mention anything about the electric. Am I missing something?

It looks like a gas water Heater - pilot version of the Suburban. Does the tag on the right side list a model number such as SW6P?

I'm pretty certain it is a gas only model. The tag on the bottom right has the model number. Of course it is covered by sealant and tore the other day when I tied to peal it back to get the numbers. It covers the model and serial numbers.

If it's gas only you can add a "Hott Rod" heating element for electric.
