I was reviewing some youtube training videos on the atwood wh and one guy said only if it stayed on would it be a problem. Thanks
The fact that the water heater IS working on electric I suspect you have a loose wire on the back of that wall switch. There are a lot of wires going to that switch panel and when I had the same problem as you I carefully removed that panel and easily worked all of the wires out of the wall. I found one wire from the water heater switch wasn't hooked to anything and also found a wire coming from the wall that wasn't hooked up either. I hooked them together and no problems since. It is possible you have a switch with a non-functioning light also. Easy to replace if that is the problem.
