Winterize question

I have a jayco 12so eagle. And Im getting ready to winterize it. The directions from the RV place say something about using the bypass on the hotwater heater. But under the bench where the tank is, I cant seem to find anything that looks like a bypass.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the reply. But its already done. It doesn't/didn't have one. I spent some time online looking at images of water heaters and basically it looks like this

but without the bypass link in the middle. Just the water in and out. So I went down to home depot, bought some plumbing bits and made one. I'll have to take a picture of it next year (currently in storage).

All set tho. Thanks!.


ps..my wife's already scared..I've been working up some custom designs for it for next year. Looking to add a Flatscreen and AC to it.

Ya...so I had this whole thing typed up..but forgot to his post...

Anyway. after searching some more online, I determined that I do not have the bypass installed. A quick trip to home depot and got the parts, and made one myself. (dad's a plumber so I got his help).

Anyways.. all winterized covered and in storage now. I'll take a pic next year when its out.

Next up on the list, going to look into adding a flatscreen and an AC.
