Water heater

I have a 1998 Newmar Dutchstar. This morning my water heater was not working using 110 volts. It does work with LP. I checker the heater outside and tried to turn the switch off then back on. It won't switch off. When I depress the rocker switch it appears stuck. I assume this has something to do with my problem as it worked yesterday and previous times I was able to easily flip the switch off and on.

Any tips.

Replace the rocker switch?

I would use a voltmeter to check for 120VAC on the water heater element. If you don't have it then check the switch. Those switches can be hard to push sometimes because they don't get used often.
