Do the inlet and outlet pipes go into and out of the top of the heater? I can see the heater but it's wrapped in thick styrofoam insulation.

I removed a small panel and I can see the water heater. There is also a small yellow vlalve handle at the bottom and at the top, there is a gray round thing. It appears to be a handle but doesn't turn. I did not find an outlet or a bypass valve and I'm not sure what the yellow one does.

These are the best pics I could get

Ok, here is another issue for no hot water at the faucets. I am posting a picture of my Atwood 6 gallon LP Gas/Electric water heater. This picture is one that I got off the web but looks just like mine which is all hooked up.

The water enters at the lower left just before the ball valve with the yellow handle. Above, there appears to be another valve with a plastic knob on it. What does the upper valve do. Should I have closed or opened it (not knowing it's position now) when I turned on my water after winter storage?

The yellow handle should be inline with the valve for normal use and perpendicular when winterizing. This is per a sticker on the side of the water heater. When I put it in line, I get no hot water. And the tank is full of hot water when I can confirm.

This upper valve has me puzzled, if it's a valve.
TIA
JimmyT
