I have the optional hot water heat by engine i.e. electic/lpg/engine HWH . I'm a couple of hundred miles from my rig so can't physically check but want to find out if there is any way to "turn off" this heat source off.

I had the engine HWH on my old Itasca gasser and liked it.The engine coolant lines are going through the water heater---I don't think there is a way to turn them off,other then bypassing the coolant lines.As for the "Electric" there is a switch outside on the water heater to disable the electric function.

Some coaches will have in-line shutoff valves in these hoses tucked into the frame rails back by the engine. That'll shut off your MotorAid heating. The electric circuit breaker shuts off the power to the electric element and I assume there's a shutoff valve on the HWH for LP gas but I haven't looked to be certain of that.
