1. Electric hot water switch/control- Works fine on the gas side, nothing on the electric side. Pulled the panel and everything looks to be connected. Inside the hot water side compartment, everything looks ok too. Was thinking a new element??
2. Inverter- So the switch isn't labeled, but when it is flipped, I hear a click from the master bedroom under the bed pedestal. One weird thing that always happens is the radio/navigation in the driver area is somehow connected to this switch. One direction and the radio doesn't work, switched the other direction, it comes on. This is the same with the truck running or not. So, I'm lost as to the function of the inverter, and when should it be utilized. Perhaps this would be affecting the electric hot water switch??
Looking forward to many years of travel with our Thor Chateau! We can't wait to get her in the wind.
I don't have your unit but I will try to help.
1. There should be a separate switch in the water heater compartment for the electric side.
2. Are you sure this is the inverter switch? Sounds like the salesman switch. Is it by the door? If so, most likely it is the coach shut off switch for all the 12v. I am guessing you may not have an inverter.
I hope you enjoy your unit and the lifestyle!
