IF the handle follows the direction the pipe runs it is open if it is crosswise to the pipe it is closed.. when setting to bypass close off the two that lead into the tank and open the the one that runs between the pipes... and remember to reverse that in the spring...

Yes, Jayco makes some awesome trailers, but the owner's manuals are way too general. Are you listening to us, Jayco ???? My book generally covers the Designer series, both TTs and 5ers. So you can guess how specific it gets when you really need to know something. Most of the time it tells you generically what MIGHT be on your unit, and please refer to the specific manufacturer's instruction book for details. Which is always buried in a large pile of paperwork in the packet. But I guess the other brands are probably not any better. And life goes on . . . . .

I agree that the manuals could be a bit more specific. Possibly an addendum for a model line. Eagle, JayFlight, etc.

One of the 'selling points' in the specs is that the by-pass IS installed.

I was told at the walk thru that the by-pass on my '11 25 RKS is under the counter, and a drawer or two needs to be removed to reach it. I'll be finding out soon, last trip ended yesterday.

After a VERY LONG HUNT, the water heater bypass on a 2012 30.5RLS is under the fridge behind the air intake for the furnace. Would a sticker in each unit from Jayco be so friggin hard?!??!???Click image for larger version
