    To be honest I've haven't tried the propane option on the hot water tank--yet.

    We do exactly this whenever needed. Multiple showers, dishes and showers, etc. We leave the electric on all the time and flip on the propane only when needed.

    I was not aware they would do dual, I thought it was either propane or electric, not both at the same time.

    I tried that with mine, I had the propane on and turned on the electric and the propane went off. So I turned off the electric and the propane came back on. I don't think mine will do both at the same time. Maybe I am doing it wrong.

    Both you and Dallas have the 376TH which, if I'm not mistaken, has a larger capacity water heater. Maybe the dual heat function is not a feature of your model heater.
    I n my case, I have the 6 gallon water heater. Doing it right entails simply turning one or both switches on. I generally run on electric when available then switch on the gas with the electric at shower time. I usually go first 'cuz I normally don't do hair and makeup after showering. Never a complaint about running shy of HW, and we don't take Navy showers unless we need to conserve Grey tank space.

    I'm not sure about this. I have a 399 and most likely have the same WH, a 12 gallon Suburban. I can run mine on both modes at the same time. I usually leave it on electric and only turn on propane with electric when we will be taking multiple showers in a row.
