Well, I have an update and am titling it "Winterizing - A Tale of Woe." We opened the plug and let the water drain from the water heater. Then, we began the search for the back of the water heater to locate the by-pass valve. The manual was no help. We pulled out the slide and looked behind the panel (which is directly behind the water heater) - nope, not there. Then, we thought it might be in the storage area and pulled everything out - nope, not there. Then, we thought maybe it is accessible from underneath - nope, not there. So, we decided to forget that part and just concentrate on getting anti-freeze into the fresh water tank and running through the faucets. We started our search for the water pump to pull in the anti-freeze. Again, the manual was no help as it is generic and doesn't show locations of anything specific to our 6502 Vibe. Finally, in desperation we decided all we can do is drain the water heater and all tanks and pour some anti-freeze into the traps. Done - now all we have to do is pull in the slide and call it good enough. What? We now have no power! We checked the breakers both in the camper at in the house and tried again. We instantly flipped the breaker in the house again. So, we decided to locate the manual crank and again tried to refer to the manual. Again, there is no indication of the location of the manual crank - only a mention that we may need to purchase a handle if it didn't come with it. Does anyone want to buy a 2012 Vibe only used 4 times??? Is it normal to have this many issues with a new camper? The camper wasn't new to us - we bought it after the original buyer realized their TV wasn't strong enough and put it up for sale without using it once. So, we have no warranty and the company won't help us because we didn't purchase it new directly from a dealer. What a mess!!!
