Dolphin '96 - hot water heater switch

Hi all:

New to this! Looking for help - can't locate the on/off switch to turn on the water heater in my newly acquired 1996 Dolphin.
It's the electronic ignition type. Have looked high and low.
Manual says there is one but I cannot locate it.
Help! It is not working at all....

Not too sure about a 96, but in my 95 it is on a row of switches on the stove vent along with the status, stove fan, stove light, water pump, and water heater. It lights up when switched with a notice of "pilot out". This notice extinguishes when the pilot ignites. My switches are all labeled--I would look to the location that had other switches. Hope this helps. Jerry

Not sure on the '96 either. My '99 has the water pump and HW heater switches on the tank level panel in the hallway with the AC and furnace thermostat. I would think wherever your pump switch is, the heater switch isn't far away.
