Water Heater Help

How on earth do I get to my water heater shut off valves in my 3170?? I can see and reach the cold water shut off into the water heater, but that's it. Is that the only shut off? In the roo, there were 3 valves, hot, cold, and bypass. HELP!

I assume you are winterizing? They are located under the kitchen sink. You can either remove the drawers or just open them and reach in. I believe the second drawer from the bottom is not as deep allowing you to get your hands in there. There are 3 valves, you need to close the 2 valves that that go in/out of the water heater (perpendicular to the line) and the line that connects the 2 lines (bypass) needs to be open (parallel to the line) does that help?

I can't get my head in the space to see any other lines... this is crazy! lol. I know what needs to be opened and closed (thanks, though) I just can't see any other lines or valves, just the one running the cold water into the W/H.
