Question Location of ON/OFF switch for my Hot Water Heater - 19ERD

Hello! I recently purchased the 2022 Vintage Cruiser 19ERD. The manual I got is more of a general one and not specific for my model. The tech video I have watched on YouTube was posted in April of 2020 and the switch is located under the light switch inside the bathroom. This has since been changed and was moved sometime between then and now with the 19ERD model. Can someone please tell me where the switch to turn it on is? I am a novice and this is a whole new world for me. Thank you in advance!

I have the vista cruiser which is -very- similar to your Vintage. The on-off switch for my HW Heater is the outside hot water panel. The switch is in the bottom left of the outside panel.

Be sure there is water in the hot water tank before turning on. Once water is pressurized in your system, you can test if the hot water tank is full with the outside pressure relief valve. The pressure release valve looks just like the one that is at the top of your home/apt's hot water heater.

I don't think you would need to check the hot water tank anode since it is a 2022 but this is also something you should take a look at the end of your season.

Perhaps others on the forum have additional suggestions.

Are you talking about the switch to run the water heater from propane, or from electric (shore power)? Inside water heater switches should be on this panel, but there is also an electric switch where post #2 says there is:

Thank you both so much! I thought those two switches were for the furnace because they only say heater under them but not water! I have a lot to learn! So the furnace will only run off of propane, got it! I found a nice video here that explained my exact furnace to me. I think I am good, till the next question lol. Thank you again! Have a great day

If 120vac equipped, the outside switch, in my opinion, has always been more to protect the 120 element when WINTERIZED, so that someone does not turn on while tank is dry/ winterized, outside switch should be OFF when winterized. There should be inside switch (if equipped) so you do not have to go out in the rain to turn on. Mine is LP gas only, but does have the outside switch, too.

An LP gas only water heater will not have the outside switch on it.
