Without a make and model number we can't tell you.

Mine is sitting in a snow bank so I can't look..... but I'd hope there
is some sort of sticker inside the outside access door that has model
number but I am not sure of that.

Most water heaters for RVs are by either Suburban or Atwood....please give us the kind of RV you have if you cannot locate a model number on the water heater, itself....mu water heater is by Suburban and there is a label stuck on the water heater outside....it gave me the model #, serial #, and stock #.....from there one can google that particular model and find out information.

Anyway you can take a pic of it and post it here?

If you have the Atwood, it's not going to have an outside switch, but will have two switches inside (one for propane, one for electric)

If you have the Suburban, it may be outside and kinda hidden like in this pic. It's easy to overlook initially:



There also exists the possibility that you have a propane only water heater.......and there is no electric heating element.

One more thing mstephenson, is the locking tab for the water heater access door, plastic or metal?

A plastic tab is Suburban and a metal tab is Atwood (see red arrow below).
