Our coach does not have a switch for the electrical element in the water heater. When we do not need electric for the water heater, I turn off the circuit breaker.

Are you sure that it has electric? Our old one did not, our new one does. ;-)

Look in your breaker panel. There should be a 20amp breaker labeled "water heater" if you indeed have a electric water heater

The only other control is the rocker switch on the water heater itself and if it is like mine, it is hard to get to because I have to remove a drawer. So that one stays on and I use the breaker.

I had no electric option. I did install the Hott Rod to get that option and wired a lighted switch into the galley. Has worked great for 10 years.

Be sure not to put this option on a circuit that is fed by your inverter.

I have a 98 Intrigue, the only switch is on the back of the water heater. To access my water heater there is a small access panel in the bottom of the closet on the driver side. The best option is to turn off the circuit breaker. My coach number is 10557
