A water heater question from my mom

My mom has a 1995 sun-lite travel trailer that is 24 feet long. She is having trouble locating the water heater and since I'm not near her, I can't check. Could anyone give me some ideas that I could send her to look, please?

My main thoughts are under the dinette bench seats, under the bed, and a few others. I just suggested a few of them tonight. But wanted to see what other ideas, you all may have.
Thanks,

Look on the outside of the TT for a hinged panel that will look like this. Open that panel & you will find the hot water heater.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I agree, it will have to be located on the outside first as they stick them is any nook or cranny they can find room.

The panel was one of the first things i suggested. But I will have them look again today. I also suggested to them, that when they turn on the water heater switch, to listen for the clicks of the ignition and track that sound down. Then they should know. But they said the couldn't find any panels simulare to that. But also having them take pictures to send to me, so I can tell them whats what on the the outside and inside.

I don't think the outside panel for the Hot Water Heater has changed in years. Our 91 Prowler had the same panel as our current 2010 Montana. I think the only thing that has changed is the twist latch, from metal to plastic.
