My understanding was that you wanted to install a switch that lights up when it is switched "on". While you can install a simple "single pole single throw" in series with the "hot" side of the line (and then leave the switch on the water heater itself continually in the "on" position) , it will not indicate with a light whether the power is on or off. The "power on light" is desirable to minimize the chance of accidentally applying power with the Water Heater empty of water thereby instantly frying the heater element. It doesn't matter whatsoever in what location that you wish to install a remote switch/pilot light combo, it requires three wired connections as described in my original link posting. Good luck with your project.

Anyone move there hot water tank switch?

In our 21SS, I mounted a lighted switch in the lower panel beside the inverter outside the bathroom door. Really easy spot to run wires from as you are just going inline from your breaker panel to new switch.
Just looked on my phone. I have deleted the pics. Scan my posts you will find it.

Looked back, I started a My Mod thread in June last year.

I used this switch and 14 gauge extension cord to get to the panel.
