What is the model number of your water heater? Two switches and the light in the middle?

S​orry for the delay in getting back to you. I live in Northern California and we are dealing with some severe fire issues here. That light in the middle should only come on when you select the LP mode and then once the water heater ignites it goes off again. It is just to let you know that ignition is taking place. See the attached link for a copy of the Atwood Service Manual. Print that out so you have it. It explains all this and more. http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/atwoodwaterheater.pdf
