Exclamation Winterize 2016 Redhawk Class C- water heater and by pass valve

We are ready to winterize our new 2016 Redhawk - however we can't locate the water heater and by pass valve.
This set up is not like our Jayco travel trailer. SO far we have blown the lines but not added any antifreeze as we don't want to fill the water heater.
We've searched EVERYWHERE and can't find any valve-

Please help- temps are dropping...

What model do you have? The locations vary by model.

Didn't Jayco use tankless in 2016?

Isn't the water heater bypassed by using the winterize dial selections in the water command center?

Our redhawk doesnít work like that. Our bypass is beside the hot water heater under the kitchen counter behind a vent panel.

Oh, I didn't know that. I though Redhawks and Greyhawks shared the same water command center.

I donít have a picture handy but based on pictures online, it looks like it sits under the refrigerator. Take the panel off below that and you should see it.
