During pre-delivery testing of my brand-new Flagstaff TT last summer, a service tech discovered a minor leak in one of the fittings near the city water intake. The water pump and filter are in this same very cramped and difficult to get into area in a corner of the bathroom. After much difficulty he pulled out a PVC Tee fitting which he said had a small crack in it.
I had purchased a winterization bypass kit and so asked him if he could just replace the fitting with my bypass valve. He said "sure, that's easy and will save you some work!" Which was my thinking exactly...
Now this last week I was going to use the bypass for running antifreeze through the system. I crawled into the corner and found the valve...but the idiot had put the valve on the OUTPUT side of the pump. That is, it's between the city water inlet and pump. Idiot.
I did blow all the lines with my compressor anyway, so I'll have to be content with that until I can buy a new bypass valve and put it in correctly. I guess as always, if you want it done right you have to do it yourself.
The image below shows the correct setup...
