Assuming you have a Suburban-brand water heater...yes, that tiny little switch is how you turn on the electric element. I couldn't believe it either.
My TT also has a switch inside on the control panel, but that is for GAS. When I'm on shore power I like to use electric so I can save my propane. I do turn on the gas when taking a shower because that seems to give me a few more minutes of hot water and yes you can have both gas and electric on at the same time.
My previous rig had a switch near the kitchen sink, so having only that one hard-to-get-to switch for electric bugged me a lot! So I added my own on/off switch inside the cabin:
Water Heater Switch with Power-on Light
If you're reasonably handy, I would rate this mod as 3/5 difficulty at best.
