I found the on off switch, it was behind a sticker. So that switch turns on or off the electrical operation of the heater and the switch inside turns on or off the gas operation?

I can clearly hear the gas operation, is the electric operation silent?

No burner sound, if that's what you mean.

The interior switch is for propane operation. The exterior switch is for electric. Either system can be operated independently, or together for faster recovery. To operate them together, you just light the water heater from the inside switch (propane) with the outside switch (electric) in the on position.

I want to thank everyone, I found the "hidden" switch which was covered by a white piece of tape and all seems to be working. The electric seems to not get as hot as the propNe but definitely works.

Again thanks to everyone for your help!

After going through all the workings of the trailer we "camped out" while sitting in the yard. I figured I would find any problems or iron out any bugs while at home, everything worked flawlessly and we all slept like rocks! I have to say the mattress in the permanent bed is super comfortable.
It was warm and humid here last night and with a window open and the maxx fan running on low was quite comfortable.

Thank you! He's a very good kid, we are blessed for sure!

I'm looking forward to your hopefully chronicled escape trip to pick up your 5.0 TA! I'm going to talk to my wife this evening about setting up a weekend up in your neck of the woods, I'll be in touch via private message.

Anyone else have trouble registering the refrigerator? The dometic on line registration form is telling me the serial number is incompatible with the model number! So I go back out and confirm the serial number and it is what it is. So now what? I don't see why I even need to register anything on the trailer at all, I have a bill of sale and the delivery date, what more could they possibly need?

Could you be confusing a numerical "0" for an alphabetical "O"? Don't ask me how I know this! ��
