Hot water heater

I have a 2002 Thor Aero Cub C116 with a propane water heater. There is a on/off switch inside the unit, anyone tell me what it's for. I don't have owners manual and haven't been able to find anything on the net.

Aerolite and Kodiak has had manufacturers' manuals for the different things in their hybrids, on their websites for years.

Thanks 007, it is and I heed your word. I thought there would be a thermocouple on the unit, anyway, I take this to mean I can turn the switch off when not in use and the pilot light stays on and I save fuel.

Hi Bikendan, I have contacted Aerolite and several others, however, they are very helpful when it comes to the trailer itself, but they differ when it comes to appliances(inclusive of hot water systems). Research wasn't wasted because I came upon many articles that were very useful. Thanks for help

Here is a link to Dutchmans archived literature for years late 80's to 2010.

On our 05' Cub we had the DSI gas / electric hot water heater. Inside the cabinet below the sink there were 3 lighted bat switches. #1 water pump, #2 water heater (gas), #3 water heater (electric).

Here is the PDF link to the 2002 Cub brochure Here it shows there was an option for DSI water heater. I wonder for 02' the DSI option for a DSI (Direct Spark Ignition) was just a gas only water heater, where the standard water heater would have been just a manual lighting water heater. For 05' the option was worded Gas / electric DSI water heater
