Shwintek slide. One side is not parallel to the wall vertically. Top corner is in about 2. How can I correct this?
Resetting it is easy, run slide as far out as it goes bring it in about 8-12 inches then repeat it 4 times at least sometimes takes up to 6.if that doesn't fix it could be stuff in track(wipe with dry rag DO NOT LUBE IT) or possibly motor or controller going bad. If rig has 2 slides you can flip flop controllers and see if that fixes it if it not its a motor which arent hard but tedious( check youtube for video) to replace. The controllers are usually in the exterior cubbies mounted to roof

Looking for an owners manual for a 1993 Damon Hornet..even if it’s online
Finding an older model owners manual is usually not worth the effort. The manuals are written very generically to cover multiple models and changes made on the production line. Since the number of models produced is low and not worth changing the manual to be accurate. Take a survey of your RV and note every item installed. Those systems most likely have manuals, even troubleshooting guides to help. You can even read owners manuals for current RVs available on their manufacturers websites if you'd like.

How do I switch my hot water from propane to electric?
If the water heater is dual fuel (elec/LP) and it is manufactured by Suburban you will need to go outside to the access door of the water heater. Once you have opened the access door to the lower left below and behind the gas valve/burner tube you will see a small black switch labeled on/off. Switch that to on for electric operation. and then you may turn off the LP switch located inside the unit. If it is an Atwood then inside the unit you should have a switch panel with two switches, one for LP and the other for electric. The panel may be by itself or the switches may be located on your tank level monitor panel.

How to turn on water heater
This might not be much help, without more details, but there should be a valve inside the water heater panel (outside) you can open. Open the valve at the main propane tank also.
Make sure the water tank is FULL before you fire it up. There should be a switch inside the coach somewhere to turn it on.
If it doesn't ignite immediately, you probably have air in the lines. Light the stove and let it burn for a minute, then try the hot water tank again. Might take a few tries to get it fired up.
