Sovereign w/Atwood heater

I have a '76, 31' Soveriegn with an Atwood gas/electric water heater. Model # GC 10 A-2. My AS service manual indicates only LP and doesn't mention electric. Neither do the wiring diagrams indicate any power to the water heater. So.....does anyone know if this is original, a replacement, how old? Also, I'd really like to find an owner's or service manual for it in case I ever need to troubleshoot the thing. Thanks for any help.

Atwood is still around, give them a call, or an email, or send smoke signals, I bet they'll respond.

I've never heard of a water heater that was both gas and electric. But then, it IS a big world, huh?

If it's to be, it's up to me.

Direct link to your manual - the first one on the list. It's a replacement.

Thanks so much Gary, I printed it off this afternoon. A great help.

Aage, Turns out that gas/electric water heaters are very common. Apparently it's even possible to run both systems at once if you want quick hot water. When we move in, I'll try a month of gas and a month of electric to see which is cheapest.
