Palomini HW heater

I have a friend who just purchased a used Palomini 180FB. We've looked everywhere for a switch to turn on via AC and can't find one. I also noticed there is no breaker for a hot water heater. Is it possible it's propane only?

Yes, it could likely be propane only. If it's a Suburban brand water heater, this FAQ could help, in case it does have an electric heating element and where to find the switch for it.

The brand and model number of the water heater will tell the story, if you have access to that information.

Don't know the model number, but based on the replies, I'm sure it's propane only. Thanks everyone!

Most older trailers like our 2006 were propane only........ our 2013 is the first trailer that has the option..........
