Thanks Bill. The kids want to sleep in the trailer again, so weíll set everything up again tomorrow, and Iíll check my setup. Iím pretty sure on my panel, Gas is blacked out and Electric is not. But yeah, I saw some other mistakes in the manual (like it only referred to a 20 gallon freshwater tank and the original Thefford toilet), so Iíll take it with a grain of salt that I have some mixed up stuff. I did manually rewrite down what Scott told us, so Iíll look at that again as well.

Did you get a chance to see my post about the baggage locks? Just wondering if that made sense and if you can do the swap out or not.

If I can suggest, take pictures of all your appliance info tags. Once I got my rig home I opened it up and took pictures of just about everything. It helps to have a quick picture/reference which has serial numbers and model info when you have to search for info on said product. I read someones post on the trailer axel repair they had to do. They were not sure of the model or serial number since it was an old TM. After reading that hick up, I went out and got a shot of the axel product tag, so I have the serial number if I had to get a say no-adjust brakes for the rig. It can also help for insurance needs.

Good idea! I also wrote down all of my serial numbers on a page that came with the TrailManor for the appliances.

Default About that Water Heater Switch

So we finally checked that water heater switch panel by the kitchen sink...thereís nothing hooked up to the middle switch (the one that said Gas and Electric with Gas blacked out with a marker) at all. So good news is we have any extra switch that we could repurpose. It looks like the left switch (that says On and Off) is the on/off switch for the propane ignition for the water heater and the electric on/off is only available through the switch outside. So I guess thatís how the 2021ís work. I can have both propane and electricity to heat the water.

As the pictures in my earlier posts show, I have made up a new panel with two switches and correct labels. On my rig, there is no switch on the water heater itself. My plan in the next few days is to buy another switch and put it into the empty hole in the water heater itself, wiring it in series with the switch on the panel. I can then control the heater from inside or outside. Fortunately, the exact same switch is available from Amazon and others, so it will be a simple job to snap it into place.

Why do this? An inside switch is real handy, especially if I arrive at a campground after dark or in the rain. But if the inside switch is the only switch, it is too easy to flip it on during setup, before the tank is filled, and burn out the element. And when I am closing the camper down, draining the water heater is an outside job, and an outside switch is more easily remembered.

In earlier days of the Forum, several of our members added a second indoor switch, in series with the outdoor switch (it is easy to do) for exactly this reason, and were pleased with it.

Very Nice !! In the 7th picture below the towel rack there is a brown rectangle thing . Ours is missing and TM hasn't responded to my email yet after a few months. Hoping you can give me a clue what it is. Thanks in advance !!

In front of the sink, down near the floor? It is the CO and propane detector unit. You should have one!
