Atwood LP Gas Water Heater-6 gallon-bypass


I'm a fairly newbie to RV'ing. The water heater in our JayFlight 22FB is
a 6 gallon propane/electric model.

For winterizing purposes, I'm trying to determine if it has a bypass system installed. A typical RV water heater bypass kit would be something like this:

Camco By-Pass Kit, Quick Turn RV Permanent - Walmart.com

I opened the access panel underneath the refrigerator and took a picture of the water heater setup. Here are two pictures below.

Can someone tell me if looks like there is a bypass installed in my water heater setup?

Also, if there are any good links in the forum to winterizing the water lines in the Jayflight 22FB or similar travel trailers, i would be very grateful.

Mike , you have the bypass. Just close the top/bottom valves and open the middle one and you are successfully bypassed.

Thanks so much, TC Nashville. Saves me a trip to the RV store to pick up an extra part.

Don't forget to drain it and make sure it's not powered up until refilled.
