help with suburban water heater

My name is Sherri and my husband is Mark. We are new to this site and new to rv-ing. I posted last night that Mark is having trouble figuring out how to run his Suburban water heater on electric only. We just bought a 2005 Montana. If anyone has an answer we would really appreciate it. Thanks!!

Hi Sherri & Mark! Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join us!

On my Suburban WH there is a 120 VAC switch on the WH itself, and another switch in the kitchen. Both must be on for the heater to operate on AC. We leave the AC on all the time at a campground, and turn the propane on about an hour before we want to take showers so we get more hot water before running out!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Are you sure your water heater operates on both 120VAC and LP?
My 10 gal Suburban is LP ONLY.

For my Suburban, we have a regular light type switch with a red light below it in the bedroom electrical compartment. Same compartment where our slide switch and inverter panel is located. The switch will be a heavy type switch as it does carry a few amps. Hope that helps.
