2012 314BDS Water Heater Bypass

Hello all,

I have found my water pump winterizing hose and bypass for the draw from the fresh water tank.

What I don't know how to get to is the controls for water heater bypass.
Do I need to remove the panel under the closet across from the bathroom?

Any help is appreciated!

I don't have your floorplan, but the hot water heater bypass valves should be directly in front of or near the hot water heater. So depending on it's location, you may have to remove an interior panel. Mine has a door which makes it easy.

You may have to remove a panel to access your WH.

This is what the different types of bypass systems look like.

yes. you need to remove that panel under the closet. you will need your owners manual to see which valves need to be turned and the direction to turn them.
