Hot Water Tank
Previously I owned a 2009 Jayco 31 BHDS which had the propane and electric switches in the trailer. Now I own a 2011 Pinnacle 31 REQS which has the same but also has an on/off switch at the hot water tank. My questions are:
Why the extra switch at the hot water tank, and what is its purpose ?
If the switch is turned on at the tank, and both propane and electric switch are turned off in the RV, does the hot water tank draw power ?
The reason I ask these questions is that I have 2 - 2000 watt generators which, depending on the amount of power I may require, I can run them in parallel. I have run just one generator which provides enough power to run the furnace, charge the 2 batteries, radio, etc.. What I have found since dewinterizing is that my one generator now overloads as soon as it is plugged in. I am at home now away from my seasonal site, racking my brain as to why this is happening. Could it be because of this outside switch now being turned on ? I can think of no other explanation as EVERYTHING else is turned off when plugging in the generator. I hope to check this out next week.
