The one question I have is in regard to the water heater electric/gas switch. I am assuming that if the camper is plugged in you can turn the switch to electric so the water heater runs only on electric?? Seems logical only I thought it does that automatically when you have the camper plugged in.
Before detailing my comments, I would like to state that I always heat water with electricity, when it is available. Mostly all camp ground charge the same price regardless of how much electricity is used. Using electricity saves on propane.
On my 2009, 23SS, I have a switch located on the storage cabinet to the left of the door when looking out. This switch controls the automatic ignition of the gas burner. On lower left corner of my hot water heater, I have a switch that controls the heating element.
After connect to my water source, I open the T/P valve to be sure the water heater is filled with water. Then I turn on the heating element by flipping the switch to the ON position. When breaking camp I turn the switch to the OFF position to prevent heating element from being on the next time I hook up.
