I know that when it comes to the common Suburban model SW6DE water heater, that some trailers/coaches do have an inside switch (like Turbos TT does) to turn the electric heating element on.
However, many (including both of my trailers), did not come with an inside on/off electric heating element switch......but instead have ONLY this black switch that is located on the front of the water heater itself...near the left hand bottom side. It is hidden just a little, and you have to open/remove your outside water heater panel to get to this switch. See pic
The OP is wanting to know if there are other options available, so he doesn't have to go outside the trailer to access the switch to turn his electrical heating element on/off.
