This must be what they are going to. Sure seems confusing to change the old way to a new way without some directions.

Probably all about efficiency in manufacture. I expect the 3-way valves are slightly more expensive, but you cut out 2 T connectors , 1 2-way valve, and make 6 less connections and 3 less pipe cuts. I actually think it looks cleaner as well, but for those who like to use the bypass as a tempering valve, I doubt that would work anymore.

BTW - It would be a really nice touch if the hex plug on the water heater was the same size as the nut on the stabilizers. It's about 1/8" larger... Now I have to find a socket set...

The design on that water heater must have been done in the dark ages...

Thanks for this info and for the entire thread actually. Our 2017 Jay Flight SLX 154BH has the same 2 valve set up and this is the only place online that I found this info. I didn't see the 2 valve set up mentioned at all in the manual.

It seems to be an industry standard that the drain plug on the water heater must be made to be as inaccessible as possible.

Just winterized my brothers 2017 145RB on Thursday night. Much to my suprise when i got to the hotwater tank, there was no shutoff valve on the pipe connecting the in and out lines. I looked all over, maybe they had moved it or something ....nope. So, i just shut off the two valves, and opened the valve to the hose in the A/freeze container, hit the pump switch, and voila, it worked. So, after reading this post this a.m., i had to go out and see what my 195RB has, and it still has the old style valves on both in/out lines and a valve in between, but it is a 2016. I'll have to see what our new 2017 212QBW has when we get it home next weekend. Yep, upgrading a bit in size...after camping in 4 out of 8 days last week in rain, we realized the added space would be nice, although, we do like the 195RB very much.

When removing the plug, try a lug wrench. If you have a 4 way, one of those will fit the drain plug if you can snake it in there.

Another tool that you may already have is a set of thin wall plumber sockets for working on household faucets. That's what I use to remove mine.
