water heater switch

Hey all,
We bought a 5th wheel awhile back and after going over the rig noticed two switches for the hot water heater. I am assuming one is for electric and the other for dry camping? Not really sure so wanted to throw it out there. Thanks in advance,

RV Moron in Oregon lol

The one on the right is for electric and the other works off of propane. I have 2 switches also. My electric sides does take a bit longer to heat then propane, but is nice in that I can have it on and not worry about using up propane and I get no noise when heating.

Beg , to differ, awarness, the left switch is 110volt and the indicator lamp will stay on when being used.
The Suburban switch on the right is the propane control, and depending on the year , the indicator will be on when the propane is igniting, and flash on whenever the tank re-lights or stay on constantly after it is turned on.
For an owners manual take the model number and production date off the H/Water heater and visit the Suburban web site for a download.

Thanks Skip426,
I have been using the one on the right and it works off propane. I assumed by the switch that the one on the left was 110. Wanted to make sure though Thanks for the response.

Boy I need to learn my right from my left. I can't believe I said the one on the right is electric. Just think I'm a teacher. OMG
