H20 Heater bypass

Am still learning about our 2013 26RLS.

Can someone tell me where the water heater bypass valve is located so that I can make sure it is in the correct position before I turn on the water heater and burn out the element?


Thanks,

KRP

It is behind the panel under fridge. There is a schematic on the heater.

Thanks Hector,

I took the panel off and there it was. But, there was no schematic for valving. Just one for the electrical.

Really? My camper isn't here so I can't look but I thought I saw one for the valves on the upper portion of the insulation. I could be wrong, it won't be the first time. :-).

I know there was one in the book for my old camper but I have not gotten that far into it with this one.

Hector.

As usual there is no schematic in the book. Jayco and all others could go a long way if they supplied specifics with their units. Its OK to have the general book, but they should supply the necessary materials and drawings that are specific to each type of trailer.

I like the forum very much and don't mind asking questions as everyone has been been nice about it, but their instructions could be 100% better.

My new Tundra has an ooners manual that leaves nothing to doubt. Camper manufacturers could take a lesson from them.

It will be on the back of the water heater or in the utility compartment if your rig has one.

If your heater has three valves shown on the back of it this is how the are suppose to placed. NOTE the valves are elongated and this will show they are passing water or have it blocked.


Photo from google images


Let me look some more on google images to see if I can find a two valve diagram for you.. Im not having any luck finding a clear view of a two valve water by-pass...

Looks to me like the diagrams are right. However, the picture of the valves on the back of the water heater itself show hot and cold water mixing. Shouldn't the valve in the middle be closed? Great pictures too by the way.

Joe - I noticed that too. These came from google images. I don't think it is a camera angle - looks like it is also opened haha... Yes the middle one should be closed like the schematic shows...

Roger that! It is a dis-service to owners not to know where the essential devices are and how to use them. Could probably get it all on one page.
