Amanda, are you talking about the switch inside your popup to the water heater, since many of your type trailers don't actually have an electric heating element too?

If you are talking about the inside switch (which is to the gas/propane), you should be fine.

You most likely do not have an electric heating element to burn up.

EDIT: I looked up your RV specs at the Forest River website, and it appears you only have a propane water heater (no electric element). You should be OK, but do need to turn it off while towing. If they closed your propane cylinders, it couldn't light up anyway.

Here is what the webpage states and shows as standard on your model:

Hot Water Package (incl Water Filter, Outside Shower, Six Gallon DSI Hot Water Heater, Demand Water Pump) (Opt 206STSE, 207SE; Std 228BHSE, 23SCSE, 28TSCSE)

Okay thanks. I was going thru my warranty stuff and paperwork and it said what it was but not necessarily how it should be managed. My husband isn't the most savvy so that's why I am asking questions.

Amanda, if you will go back to Post #15 where I posted a bunch of links, click on the Suburban water heater electric switch and much more thread.

Just read the first part in the first post about the propane/dsi side of a water heater. That should give you a good understanding of how your propane only water heater works (and the lockout mode). You can ignore the rest about the electric heating element in the post, since you don't have that type.

Are they round plastic pucks at different areas in the camper? Mine have a small soft rubber button in the middle of each that is the switch. You can switch each on and off individually. Sorry I don't have any pictures of my lights turned off, and the camper picture with them on are too bright to see any detail.
