A couple of options , depending on the type of Heater, my Suburban uses a 110v light style switch with an indicator lamp,& a 12v switch for gas in the power panel area. Atwoods I've seen use a relay, contolled from a circuit board on the heater and two 12v switches, one for gas & one for electric, usually both types are mounted side by side.

my water heater does not burn propane, it is a Seaward electric only with a heat ex-changer built into it that the hurricane systems circulates through to also heat water. it does not have any switch that I can find and I am not sure which breaker feeds it.

LDP243.....You may have to get a meter out and start testing the various breakers to the wiring at the heater. Monaco/Beaver were pretty good about labeling their wiring. You might want to open the breaker box up and look on the back side of the plate covering the breakers or the wires running into it.

I'm nit sure what year Monaco bought out Beaver, but if yours was a Monaco product. The higher end Monacos will be real similar. Give it time, but someone should come along soon with a similar coach.

My 1997 HR Endeavor has a switch near the bathroom sink that controls 120vac to the water heater. I think there is also a breaker and I don't remember if there is a relay or the switch is directly controlling the 120vac.
