2008 Grey Wolf 28bh water heater ?

So just purchased this 2008 grey wolf 28bh travel trailer and was wondering if this unit is a electric and propane unit? Been looking for info all over google with no results at all. My previous trailer had switches all on the inside. Not sure where to look for the electric switch on this?

Find the brand and model number of the water heater. It will be on a label on or near the heater. Google that info for your answer.

Probably a Suburban.
On a 2008 model, propane switch inside and electric switch outside on the WH itself.

If a dual power source Suburban like Dan suggested, then this detailed FAQ link may help (which we keep in the forum's FAQ section).

Not all RV's come equipped with an electric heating element though. The link above will explain the electric switch if equipped.

Hope it helps.

You don't see the blue text in my previous post? This is a click able link. You just click your mouse on it...Or if you are using an app, you just tap on it.

Here it is again:

You can also go to the FAQ subsection of our forums, and it's the thread titled "Suburbans electric switch and much more"

Wmtire, I know where the link is, but wanted to let you know it doesn't always come through as blue. On my tablet it is grey, same as the other text. Just an fyi.

That is interesting. I'll have to research it. Here is a screenshot of how it appears on my phone app.

Remove the outside cover of the water heater. If there is a switch on the lower left, it is electric and propane fired. If there is no switch but you see a dial it is propane only, and there won't be an inside switch.
