Burner Help Needed

I have a 2008 Jayco 1206 Jay Series Pop up camper. At the end of last season I was closing the valves on the burner to bypass it and winterize it. There are 2 valves. Some how I lost track of what I was doing and not sure which way I turned them. So in doing this I turned them a few times hoping I ended up getting them correctly. Not sure!
SO…..how do I determine how to get them in the correct position to use the burner to get hot water in the camper?
I checked the manual and it’s not covered in it.

Do the valves have 2 positions or 3?

If the handle on a valve is inline with the hose, the valve is open. When it's 90* from it, it's closed.

If the cold water line valve is open, you will hear water going into the heater, and if the hot water line valve is open, you'll get water from the hot side of the faucet.

Clarification question; are you talking gas valves or water valves? I suspect water valves.

Water valves, if the valve is crosswise to the pipe it is closed, inline with the flow, it is open. For summer use, the bypass valve should be closed (crosswise), and the inlet/outlet valves should be open (inline with pipe).

Happy Camping

Thanks all for your help.

Here’s my next issue. The valves aren’t visible. They’re “hidden” behind the wall in the trunk of the camper. I can easily reach them but how do I know which one is the bypass valve and which is the inlet/outlet valve?

Seeing how you can reach them, go ahead and take a few pictures of the valves and share them here, then we would be in a much better position to tell you what changes to the valves are needed. ~CA

Right now my camper is still covered. Once I get the cover off I’ll post some photos.
