Electric water heater in Saturn T-24?

Not sure if this is the right thread for this question but our newly aquired 1996 Saturn T24 apparently has an electric element for the water heater as well as the gas option. My friend...the previous owner tells me it does but the only way he knows to turn it off is to turn the breaker for it off. There has to be a wall switch for it somewhere. Am I wrong? He has no books or manuals for the trailer so we are not sure where it could be. I have to imagine there is a wall switch somewhere but neither of us are sure which one it is or where it's located.

Can anyone lend any tips or a typical location a switch would have been installed from the factory? I surely can't imagine that flipping off the breaker for it is the only way to turn it off.
Thanks for any help.

There may be a small switch on or near the water heater itself.

Yes, those water heaters had a small switch for the 120 volts on the back of the tank. Access to mine was through a small hole under the matress. The only other switch was the circuit breaker in the converter box near the floor. It was a royal PITA so I mounted a regular lighted switch on the wall above the converter and rewired the 120 volt feed. Now I don't have to crawl on the floor to turn on/off the water heater.

AWESOME! Thank you so much. I will be relocating the switch for easier access as well.
