Actually I think on most, if not all, the switch mounted on the front of the water heater only controls the electric heating element, not the propane burner.

Not exactly. That external rocker switch only control the 120V side of the water heater. The propane side works regardless of the rocker switch position.

You all beat me to it. The external switch on the water heater itself ONLY controls the 120 volt ac. NOT the propane.
