LOL! Yep...same issues nearly all of us faced with new rigs. The capped line will be to draw your antifreeze when winterizing. For your water heater (WH) bypass, it will almost always be right at your water heater. Two lines, with valves and a third line connecting the other two. The two lines, input and output will be closed. The third line which connects the two will be open, effectively bypassing the WH.

Be sure you drain and clean all antifreeze before you open up your Water heater...

And welcome! Enjoy the fun and ask anything you have questions about. We're all in this one to help each other.

Usually you can find the manuals on the manufacturers websit. But that's not always the case. If not, you can call customer service. Did a manual not come with it? Let me see if I can dig one up real quick....

It came with a manual but it was not in depth like I had hoped.
