Hot water heater switches.

I have a 2018 windsport and I am not sure which way to set switches on panel. I have both a propane switch and a 110 switch. I assume you only use one at a time. Doesnít seem to lite when hooked up to electric and I just have 110 switch on. When I have both on it does. Am I missing something. Thanks in advance

One switch to run on Propane. One switch to run on 110v. Either or both.

There's only a light for the propane switch to show that the burner is operational. No light for the electric switch. You can use both if you need hot water in a hurry.

When on electric the water heats through a heating element so you will not hear much of anything but a click of a relay when it comes on. When you use propane LP gas you will hear a click of the gas valve then an igniter will light the gas and you should hear the burner, if it fails to light after 3 times it will normally give you a pilot out warning. Only use one or the other.
