Question 2007 WPT28BR water heater question

I have 2007 W&P TT model WPT28BR. Does anyone know if the water heater(boiler) on this model work (should work) on AC power? If I turn switch "on" (located below stove top) the boiler burner goes on, even if the main AC power in connected. Main electrical panel doesn't have a dedicated breaker for water boiler/heated. Looking at the heater - I haven't found AC wires connected to heating coil/element. Here some pic's of that unit. Am I missing it? or this model LP only?
Thanks for you respond

don't see the black toggle switch in your first pic, that would indicate that it is a Suburban WH with electric heat.

it would help if you posted manufacturer and model of WH.

if it is a Suburban, it looks like a propane-only WH.

2007 WPT28BR water heater question

Thanks, bikendan.
That is a good hint about checking model #.

I have, as you guess it right, Suburban Model SW6 D.

On Suburban web site SW6D is in category
Gas Water Heater-Direct Spark Ignition
SW6D 6 12000/... 10.2/... 12-11/16" 12-11/16" 19-3/16" 33.3 81.9
Suburban > Products > Water Heaters > Specifications

Clear description I found on PPL video. Model SW6D is gas only, and model SW6DE - is gas & electric.
Here the link of PPL Camper Water Heater from Suburban on Sale - PPL Motor Homes
