I've had my 2000 270 for one season now and I need a new water heater. I bought a Force 10 6 gallon to replace the Atwood ehm6. The Force model has the heat exchanger to run off the engine cooling (raw water-cooled). Before I get into plumbing, what do I need to do on the electrical side to run it off of DC while underway? Right now there's just the AC switch on the main panel.
On a side note, after reading through my documentation, I realize how little I understand my boat's electrical system. Example, I don't understand why my refrigerator, an a/c appliance, can run under DC but my microwave can't. But that's a topic for another day. Any info much appreciated.

The water heater and the microwave run on AC only.  There is no DC option.  When under way, the hot water from the engine keeps the hot water hot.  The hot water heater manufactures may only recommend this to be connected to you engine's hot water if it is fresh water cooled.

I have the same boat and motor.  The water will stay VERY hot while underway.  In fact it will stay hot for hours.  No need for DC hookup.
