Water heater bypass valve?

On my 2012 357 quad slide there is a big white plug under the motorhome that allows access to under the water heater. I'm seeing three valves one of which is on a red line. Which of these valves is my bypass valve I use for winterizing?

Thanks ahead of time for anybody that replies.

I think on my 350 there are by pass valves on the top and bottom of the water heater and then a valve in the middle to allow water to flow around water heater when bypassed. Then when using the hot water heater the middle valve needs to be close so cold water is not mixed with h it. Someone will probably post diagrams and photos. Good luck!

Here is typical set up: top picture summer mode and bottom picture in by-pass winter mode.
