Where is hot water heater by pass valve

We have a 2014 Georgetown XL 360DS. We cannot find the hot water heater by-pass valve for winterization. Anyone know where it is? This is the bath and 1/2 model.

Have a look underneath your coach where water heater is and see if you have an access plug.....

By-pass

I have a 2008 370 Georgetown bath and a 1/2 and I access the bypass valve thru the panel behind the propane tank.

In the Windjammer, we have to remove all drawers underneath the sink in the kitchen to access the bypass valve. They decided to make it real easy!! Something to ask next time before choosing a TT. Good luck with yours!!

There is a removable panel behind the water heater in our trailer. Once it is taken out, the valves are easily accessible.

We called Forest River and found the access under the hot water heater under the motorhome.

I have a 3008W and it is two drawers to remove. Quite easy and fast! My last trailer I had to unscrew access panels.
