Thor 29.2 ACE Water Heather Question

I just purchased a Thor 29.2 ACE and on the manufactory specs it shows that the below floor 6-Gallon Gas Water Heater w/ DSI is standard equipment and the above floor 6-Gallon Gas / electric Water Heater w/ DSI is N/A and on my purchase order it shows that that as an option I have the 6-Gallon Gas / electric Water Heater w/ DSI. on the monitor panel it does show two switches for what appears to be for the Water Heater, one switch says "LP GAS ON" and the other says "110V ON", I turned on the "LP GAS ON" switch and the water heated in about 5 to 10 minuets. I turned off the LP Gas switch and later tried the "110V ON" switch and it seems that the water doesn't even get hot. Does any buddy know if the water being heated by 110 takes a long time to heat or is it possible it wasn't equipped with a Gas / electric Water Heater? How can I tell if it is equipped with the electric Water Heater?

110 hot water was not on our 2092 2013 ACE so we had them install the Hott Rod which lets us use either propane or electric....

Take the cover off the water heater and look for a switch. 120 v equipped heaters have the inside switch and a 'safety' switch in the water heater compartment. This is so no one turns on the 120 v element when the heater is empty. It will burn out in minutes if the tank isn't full.
