3050S hot water bypass?

Does my 2014 3050S have a bypass kit from the factory?

Thanks, I found another post that describes where it is for my unit. Apparently I have to unscrew an interior panel under my fridge to get to it.

Don't recall, but all I had to do I was unscrew the cover under my reefer (inside) to get to the valves which are as shown in the picture above.

Hey wesslvm;

We just took delivery of our 2013 3050S and are loving it although we haven't had many chances to use it!!

I found our heater with bypass in the same location (under the fridge behind the panel).

I used lp air to blow out all my water lines. I considered running antifreeze through my water lines using a hand pump connected to the city water connect outside and drawing off the bottle. This is when you want to bypass the hot water heater (after it is drained/blown out) so you don't waste filling the six gallon tank with antifreeze. I decided against the antifreeze since I was confident my lines were dry.

I also removed my water filter and made sure the housing was empty.

I used about 3 gallons of antifreeze to fill the drain traps and above the toilet valve and into the black and grey tanks.

winterising 3050s

remember when you winterize a unit, you need to include the water pump. i put pink stuff in my lines, as i use my during the winter. you have a automatic heater on the ice maker to keep the line from freezing. tank heaters go on also, dc power and temp below 40 degrees rather be safe than sorry
