Trying to understand hot water bipass

We are headed out and I'm in the process of unwinterizing. My Georgetown 351 has three valves in the exterior compartment with the water filter. I heard water rush into water heater but not getting hot water in coach. My previous unit had only one valve. Can someone help me understand this system

I'm new to the site, and I just un-winterized our new Sunseeker 3170 this weekend for our first trip. The 3 valves are the water heater bypass kit. Close the middle valve and open both the top and bottom valves. Cold water flows in the bottom & hot flows from the top, these pipes are typically colored blue and red.

The middle valve connects the hot-to-cold, this allows you to bypass the water heater for winter storage so the water heater can be drained.

Good luck.
