The top and bottom valves are open. The middle valve looks closed, as it should be for normal water heater operation.

If your camper is like mine, there is a valve between the fresh water tank and the pump that needs to be open.

Ok last question on this matter. I have sanitized etc and have fresh water in the holding tank. I have yet to turn any levers on the hot water tank and everything has been bypassing it. As stupid as this sounds, which of the 3 levers do i switch? All 3 are going vertical currently. One valve is on a vertical pipe and the other 2 are on horizontal ones going into the tank. what do i flip to what positions....oh next year i hope is easier.

The two valves that go directly into the tank should line up with the direction of the pipe, that is the open position. The one between them should be across the direction of the pipe or open.
This allows cold water into the tank and hot water out of the tank.

Don't turn the hew heater on until the tank is full. You can verify this by setting the valves and turn cold water on to the rig. open each valve inside and let it run until no bubble come out and a water stream is coming out each valve. Including the showerS.

I have a question about dewinterizing. How long can you leave the bleach water in your tank and lines without harming anthing? Can I leave in for 10 hours? We were thinking of dumping antifreeze 1/2 way to our destination and filling tank and lines with bleach water. Then driving for the day with that in the tank and lines and finishing the process when we get to our destination. Does anyone think that be a problem for the tank or lines?

I think manual quotes @6-8 hours... 10 hours should be fine. Just don't add too much bleach and you should do any harm.

This is from manual
"Let the solution remain in the tank & lines for at least four hours when disinfecting
with 50-PPM residual chlorine. If a shorter time period is desired, then a 100-PPM chlorine concentration should be permitted to sit in the system for at least one hour."
