Installation of interior hot water heater switch
I have a combination propane/electric Suburban hot water heater. We use the electric side most of the time since we are in a RV park. It was a pain to open the exterior door to turn the water heater on and off. Not to mention, on occasion, forgetting to turn it off when we left. So I installed a combination switch with light inside. The parts are all available at the big box stores. I just took the wire going from the AC breaker panel to the heater and moved it to the new switch, ran a new wire from the new switch back to the breaker panel, and ran a neutral to the new switch. Now we can turn the heater off and on inside and always know when it's on by the red indicator light. Mounted it right above the Propane Gas detector and near the AC breaker panel. See photo.
