Are you saying that the water heater only operates with propane? The only reason I can think on the 31FS is that if it has a washes/dryer it need the electric water heater off in order for it to work.

The 11 had washer 19 didnít. It just must be the option I see on Rv trader they still come with both. Not sure why you would not want the electric and propane . I no when I fill the propane I pay a road tax on it. 9.95 for my 20 lbs grill tank and some where around 30 for Rv

RE: Water Heater

The 2019 311FS has a 6 gallon DSI water heater with both gas and electric switches so you can turn both on. If this answers the question.

That's the same as mine. So, it has not changed.

We have 311fs and has both electric an gas hot water . But I think LP gas tank is to small when running Furnace, think about adding a extend a stay gas supply.

Hey Carl, we stayed 2 weeks in our 311fs and ran furnace at night and turned on gas water heater during the day just long enough to take our showers. It cost us about $18 to fill the propane back up at a Love's TS. I was surprised at how little we used.

nvs4602, I don't know how you did it with $18 of LP, specially if you turned on both furnaces. Good for you.
